Blue-faced honeyeater in Victoria, Australia


This video from Australia says about itself:

Kookaburra Vs Blue-faced Honeyeaters on a balcony

3 May 2009

My usual kookaburra visitor seems nonplussed when a blue-faced honeyeater (also known as a Bananabird) tries to scare it off. The honeyeater gets some of his mates to come back, but the Kookaburra is bigger and not the least bit afraid. After they are gone, it sits there and grooms itself – it is the Lord of the Balcony.

Still there at 6.30AM this morning, hanging around gym area. Seems to be a lone bird.
