Blue-faced Honeyeaters are common yard birds around my place. I hesitated about posting such a "common" bird but then decided it might look more exotic for visitors from other parts of the world! The patch of blue skin around the eye makes them look great when photographed against the blue sky. However, this is a case of the looks not matching the nature of the bird! They are noisy and aggressive. They sit on the roof above my head and scold me. They chase my cat and have her running for cover whenever they are around. They don't like the dog because she jumps to catch them if they are down low enough - she hasn't managed it yet but they obviously think she might! This bird is an adult - young birds have a greenish- yellow patch.
