I'm going through some pictures from Austalian last year and have several unknowns or questionables.

I will number them for convenience.

I'm pretty sure 16 is a brown honeyeater based on the little tick of yellow behind the eye.

Sorry, Chris, I've drawn a blank on attempting any more ID's. Now, maybe if you'd visited Western Australia...

Where was this photo taken? If I know where it was taken it will be easier for me to find its ID for you.

I can't see from photos 1 and 2 any birds.. do you have better pictures of them?

regards
W:)
