White Cheeked Honeyeater

White Cheeked Honeyeater Nest

Watercolour 15 x 20
We found a nest in a clump of grass in the bush at the back of our house. So close to the ground, it seems like a very vulnerable position. The eggs are tiny, about the size of a fingernail, and speckled. Some of our neighbours clear all the undergrowth at the back of their property, and this really brought it home to me why Andy is so careful about keeping our section as natural as possible.
