The yellow tinted honey eater lives on the nectar from plants in Northern Australia

The yellow tinted honeyeater is one of the more common birds in the Northern Territories of Australia. This small, noisy bird flits from bush to bush, drinking their nectar and eating small insects. Particular favorites are the Umbrella Brush, the Scarlett Bottlebrush, and “the wattle, the wattle, the symbol of our land”. This one is winging its way from one Grevilla to another.
