Crescent Honeyeater

There are lots of seasonal visitors in Hobart. Some are here in the summer and some are here in the winter. The birds that turn up for the winter seem to mostly be altitudinal migrants - they live in the mountains during the summer but head down to lower altitudes during the cold, snowy winters. The birds that turn up here over the winter include some of the honeyeaters, fairy wrens and black currawongs.

Crescent Honeyeater

Crescent Honeyeaters are one of the winter visitors. They are one of the most common birds at our house between March and October but almost completely absent over the summer. This is a photo of a male Crescent Honeyeater checking me out that I took a few weeks ago.
