Eastern Spine Bill.
This ones been gorging on the Correas that are in flower in my backyard (note the yellow pollen on the beak).

I love this bird. I don't have this species in my region. Very nice shot.
Thanks Click. They are found along the east coast of Australia. For a small bird, they have a fairly loud call. A very challenging bird to photograph, as they move like lightning (a bit like the hummingbird). But a worth while challenge when I nail a few pics
