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.
