Australian Birds

Bar-breasted Honeyeater
Ramsayornis fasciatus
(Viewing 4 of 5 photos)

Click to listen to sound sample Bar-breasted Honeyeaters occur across northern Australia from about Broome in the west and down the Queensland coast to Rockhampton. They are mainly found in vegetation fringing streams and swamps - their hanging nests are frequently built on a branch suspended over water. Fairly unobtrusive little birds, usually found singly or in pairs quietly working their way through the foliage, feeding on nectar and insects.
