Scarlet honeyeater

scarlet honeyeater

Scarlet honeyeater, Myzomela sanguinolenta, IMG 3568 - The scarlet honeyeater is unquestionably a bird that once seen is never forgotten, and anyone who fails to be awestruck by his or her first glimpse of this small but spectacular bird would have to be as emotive as an inebriated weevil. Its stunning red plumage has earned it the alternative names of ‘blood bird’ and ‘crimson honeyeater’, but such simplistic descriptions fail to do justice to the scarlet honeyeater’s true beauty.
