Bird and flower

Australia doesn’t have hummingbirds, but we do have many species of honeyeaters (they eat nectar, not honey, but close enough). I’m not particularly good at identifying birds, but I believe the one shown here is a New Holland Honeyeater (Phylidonyris novaehollandiae).

I took this photo at the Campbell Rhododendron Gardens, in the Blue Mountains region west of Sydney, in September of 2017.
