The Regent Honeyeater is one of the most endangered birds in Australia and these jewels of the forest have been bred in captivity in an effort to boost their numbers. A number were recently released in the local area in Lake Macquarie and I was fortunate on a cold wintery morning to capture a few shots of these birds in the wild. They depend on habitat for their survival, and as this diminishes, so do their numbers. They are nectar-feeding birds and the beautiful native grevillieas provide them with a rich source of food.
