In 2018 there was a record number of little Honeyeaters that were rescued in the inner city of Sydney.
It is believed they had come into the suburban/city garden areas in search of flowering nectar as their usual habitat had dried up during the drought which had affected NSW.
Although city gardens provide valuable food sources for some bird species, these tiny honeyeaters couldn’t navigate the high-rise buildings resulting in collisions.
The birds featured here all recovered from wing injuries and concussion.
They were all successfully rehabbed/released.
Birds in artwork include:
In Sydney, bird habitat is shrinking whilst urban development is increasing.
