Well, as I was filing away my honeyeater photos, I came across some very old pics taken of a honeyeater nest with chicks in it.
These photos were taken way back in 2001, and the nest in question was also in that wall of ivy that the current nest is in.
Those days, I was using my very first digital camera, a Kodak DC290.

That camera didn't come cheap. In fact, it cost more than my current dSLR body today.
Digital cameras were expensive in those days, though. I remember my sons were in uni then and one of them worked for a professional photographer setting up websites for him . That pro had a dSLR upwards of $12,000 then, and it would have been basic by today's standards.
