What do honeyeaters eat?
Honeyeaters have long, thin, downward-curved beaks that they stick into flowers.
Honeyeaters have brush-tipped tongues that lap up nectar found inside flowers. Their tongue-lapping is very fast – up to 10 laps per second.
Honeyeaters eat mainly nectar, which is sweet and sugary, like honey.
Honeyeaters also eat fruit and insects.
