Our pair of yellow faced honeyeaters build their nest in our garden every year, each time in a different tree or shrub. It is probably because of all the flowering plants we have. Although the protea is native to South Africa, the local honeyeaters seem to think it is quite delectable, and very pretty too in this French baluster shaped vase.
