White-lined Honeyeater
Meliphaga albilineata
(Viewing 2 of 2 photos)

White-lined Honeyeaters have a very limited distribution in the N.T. - the sandstone gorges of the Arnhem Land Plateau, in fact they could well be called Sandstone Honeyeater in line with all the other birds peculiar to that region.

They are one of the least well-known of any of our honeyeaters, mainly because of the inaccessible nature of where they live. They feed /on insects, seeds and nectar.
