Western Australia Day 9

A visit with my family to Perth Zoo is not the most obvious of places to discover any new species but while watching the White Rhino exhibit I noted several New Holland Honeyeaters feeding from a Coral Tree. The smaller Brown Honeyeater was also present as were several Singing Honeyeaters & Rainbow Lorikeets.
