|White-cheeked Honeyeater Phylidonyris
|Paluma, Queensland and Cheyne Beach, Western Australia
There are two populations of White-cheeked Honeyeater: one in east Australia from the Atherton Tablelands to Bermagui in NSW (photos 1 to 3) and the other in south-west Western Australia (photo 4). They are found in forest margins and scrublands where they feed mainly on nectar but also some insects.
|It is similar to New Holland Honeyeater but has a dark eye and a larger white cheek patch. Note that the cheek patch in the western race P. n. gouldii (photo 4) is smaller than that in the nominate race.|
