The Blue-faced Honeyeater (Entomyzon cyanotis) is commonly found around the northern and eastern coasts of Australia.

They live throughout woodland, pandanus, paperbarks, mangroves, watercourses, parks and gardens. They are commonly known to suck the nectar out of grevillea trees and are very common around the backyard. Their diet consists of pollen, berries, nectar, cultivated crops (e.g. bananas), but the bulk of their diet consists of insects.

Usually very inquisitive, and friendly birds, they will often invade a campsite, searching for edible items. They are particularly attracted by grapes.
