  • Blue-faced Honeyeater

  • Entomyzon cyanotis
  • The Blue-faced Honeyeater is a large black, white and golden olive-green honeyeater with striking two-toned blue skin around the yellow to white eye. The crown, face and neck are black, with a narrow white band across the back of the neck. The upperparts and wings are a golden olive green, and the underparts are white, with a grey-black throat and upper breast. Juvenile birds are similar to the adults but the facial skin is yellow-green and the bib is a lighter grey. This honeyeater is noisy and gregarious, and is usually seen in pairs or small flocks.
