White-fronted Honey-eaters feed on the nectar from Rosemary Grevillea flowers.

This honey-eater is found throughout western New South Wales, western Victoria, South Australia and Western Australia, mainly in the arid and semi-arid zones.

It feeds mostly on nectar, but also on insects and sometimes honeydew. It forages mainly at flowers in trees and shrubs, and may be seen feeding in mixed flocks with other honeyeaters such as the Brown, Singing or Spiny-cheeked Honeyeaters.

In hot weather, adult White-fronted Honeyeaters may straddle nests to shade their young.

Rendered in Poser 2010 without postwork using the Rosemary Grevillea model from X-frog’s Oceania v3 and digital bird models from the artist’s Songbird Remix collection.

As an artist, I do four things; Oils on Canvas (Social Commentary), Drawings of National Parks, Photography of Birds and California Native Plants and 2D/3D digital art which primarily focuses on birds.

My work focuses on environmental and social commentary issues and has been featured on the internet, in print and in film.
