Regent Honeyeater

THREATENED SPECIES – Winner

Central Victoria is a former stronghold for this species but only a handful of birds have been reported in recent years. Excitingly, two birds turned up in my home patch of Strathfieldsaye. I captured this image after spending the best part of a couple of days with the birds.
