General Species Information:
Found on Ellura (in the Murray Mallee, SA) and elsewhere
A very twitchy honeyeater, which was being harassed by the other local birds.
Chris Steeles, the founder of the South Aussie Birding facebook group, said "The dry outback has forced them down south! Quite a few here and there on the Adelaide plains atm too!". He also agreed this was possibly why we also saw a Crimson Chat for the first time a fortnight ago.
