Blue-faced Honeyeater

The Blue-faced Honeyeater is a large (growing to approximately 30 cm or 1 foot) black, white and golden olive-green honeyeater with striking blue skin around the yellow to white eye. I spotted this one on our next-door neighbour's banana tree. Not surprisingly, Blue-faced Honeyeaters are also colloquially known as Banana-birds.

Finished with that flower it spots another...

Hmm... how to get at the nectar within?

Sharp claws latch onto the outside of the flower...
