Photographer: Shanna Bignell
Subject: Lewin's Honeyeater (Meliphaga lewinii)
Location: Mount Coolum, Queensland
Date: December 2014
Lewin's Honeyeaters are common on the Sunshine Coast (and, indeed, through the rest of their range along the east coast of Australia).
They have a very distinctive song which has been described as "rattling" or "machine-gun-like"; however, I think it's lovely. (Visit www.birdsinbackyards.net to listen to a recording.)
This bird is named for John Lewin, an English-born natural artist who came to the colony of New South Wales in 1800 and permanently settled in Sydney. He illustrated the earliest volumes of Australian natural history.
