Here’s a pair of honeyeaters that just look like they’re ready for trouble! I call them Sugar & Spice.
The singing honeyeater is a small bird found only in Australia, living in a wide range of shrubland, woodland, and coastal habitat. It is relatively common, being widespread right across Australia west of the Great Dividing Range.
Their overall appearance is grey-brown, with the tail and wings of olive-green with flashes of yellow. There is a broad black stripe running from the behind the beak to the back, and a yellow streak immediately below this from the eye. The bird’s song ranges from scratchy to melodious and varies according to where they live.
Thank you to Peter Owen for graciously providing the reference photo as inspiration for this oil painting.
