The honeyeater lives mainly in Eastern Australia.
It likes to live in dense woodlands (Ironbark) especially near creeks and rivers.
They nest high in the tallest gum tree they can find.

Regent Honeyeater
Functional Adaptations
The honeyeater will eat bugs for protein just before the breeding season and lots of nectar in winter to keep it warm.
Behavioural Adaptations
Life Cycle
Structural Adaptations
The Honeyeater has a brush tip tongue to suck up nectar from flowers.
It has a straight beak so it can stick its tongue out easily.
The honeyeater is black with bright yellow streaks running down its back.
It is between 20-24 cm and weighs about 40 g.
They are about the same size as a
Young birds are duller and browner than adults.
Note the pale patch around its eyes (often pink).
These plants produce large amounts of nectar - their food
Nest building
They breed between August and January.
The Regent Honeyeater makes their
nest out of twigs, bark and spider web.
Chick are known as baby birds.
They're very cute.
Adult birds
they're as crazy as can be
They grow up quickly. In fact they become an adult in their first year.
Structural, Functional and Behavioural Adaptations.
The Honeyeater will fly long distances to find their favourite flowers. This leads to a very complicated migration pattern.

They are also omnivores.
They are also known as the Embroidered Honeyeater
and Flying Coachman.

The Regent Honeyeater lays up to 3 eggs at a time. They are red-brown in colour but I don't know what they taste like.

Amazingly, they almost never land on the ground except to take a bath in a puddle.
The Regent Honeyeater is a threatened species with about 800-2000 left in the world (all of them are found in Australia).
That's why we have to be careful where we build mines, homes and farms so we keep their habitat safe.
