One of my absolute favourites among our garden visitors is the pretty little Eastern Spinebill - Acanthorhynchus tenuirostris - a very long name for a shy little honeyeater. They are busy feeders, loving the native nectar flowers like grevillea and Epacris, but in our garden preferring the long tubular fuchsias and salvias.
We love watching them hanging upside down feeding from the drooping fuchsias or hovering like humming birds as they feed. In spring they become quite bold, collecting cobwebs from the eaves of our veranda just a couple of metres from where we sit.
