SCARLET HONEYEATER
Myzomela sanguinolenta 11 cm

  • Despite its brilliant colour, the male Scarlet Honeyeater is often difficult to observe because it is small and forages mainly in tall trees.

  • Usually the Scarlet Honeyeater occurs in flocks following the seasonal flowerings of plants.

  •  These birds are observed most readily in gardens where native plants such as grevilleas and bottle-brushes predominate.

  • It is often detected first by its sweet jingling call.

  • Can easily be seen in Spring on the flowering Jacaranda tree at Chambers Wildlife Rainforest Lodge .

  • The male of this species has a bright red head and chest and black wings, whilst the female is a dull brown.

  • They are often found near blossoms of equally bright red Banksia.

  • They are found in rainforest, woodlands and even urban areas along the east coast of Australia, perhaps more commonly seen in the tropical part of their range.

  • They are also found in tropical Asia and islands of the tropical Pacific.
