Artist's Description

As the description says – this is a New Holland Honeyeater. All 20 grams of him (approximately :) – I’m guessing at that weight based on my past experience.

As a member of WIRES (NSW Wildlife Information, Rescue and Education Service), I had the privilege of rescuing and raising one of these tiny creatures, for release back into the wild. When I picked that bird up, he was dehydrated, malnourished, and weighed about 14 grams. When released a couple of weeks later his weight had gone up to a hefty 19 grams, and he was happy and healthy. I hope he did well out there – he certainly seemed happy to be set free :)

Location: Australian National Botanic Gardens, Canberra, Australia
