Here’s a pair of Australian honeyeaters that just look like they’re ready for trouble! I call them Sugar & Spice.
The Singing Honeyeater is a small bird found only in Australia, living in a wide range of shrub land, woodland, and coastal habitat. It is relatively common, being widespread right across Australia west of the Great Dividing Range.
Their overall appearance is grey-brown, with the tail and wings of olive-green with flashes of yellow. There is a broad black stripe running from the behind the beak to the back, and a yellow streak immediately below this from the eye. The birds song ranges from scratchy to melodious and varies according to where they live.
