This is a Spiny-cheeked Honeyeater. We sometimes wonder who came up with many of the names for the wide variety of honeyeaters that we have in Australia. Now while this one does have "spiny cheeks", surely the bird naming authorities could have been more creative. We're thinking "Pink-beaked Honeyeater", "Blue-eyed Honeyeater", "Coral-breasted Honeyeater". Or maybe even they could have called this one "Singing Honeyeater", and given the so-called Singing Honeyeater a more suitable name... In any case they are wonderful birds, and this one is in Mat's parent's garden on the edge of Alice Springs. . . . . . . . .

This past Sunday, I had fun as this golden eagle flew towards me. He was perched but as I came towards it, it flew towards instead of away from me.

Eurassian Eagle

Palm cacatoos not only look like rock stars they are the only non-human species that manufactures and uses branches or stones as drumsticks. This amazing behaviour produces a remarkably rhythm analogous to musical instruments use by humans. They live only in Nothern Australia, New Guinea and West Papua.
