The image above shows a Fuscous Honeyeater devouring a moth for breakfast.
The Fuscous Honeyeater is a bit of a strange one for me. For a start it has a very odd name. Fuscous comes from the Latin meaning “dark and sombre” apparently. No idea why you would call a bird a name like that.
There is virtually no information on the species in Wikipedia. But Birds Australia does provide more detail.
It is a rather ordinary looking bird of a plain green colouring with a small yellow tuft. Found mostly in open eucalypt forests and woodlands. I have seen them more frequently around water drinking with other honeyeaters, particularly the Yellow Tufted Honeyeater. If I had to compare it to a similar species, I would say the Fuscous Honeyeater’s closest neighbour would have to be the White Plume Honeyeater.
