Lewin's Honeyeater (Meliphaga lewinii).

Illustrated from a wild reference; Brian. Brian is a wild Lewin's honeyeater who occasionally visits a small off-grid cabin on the outskirts of Malaan National Park, which is part of the Wet Tropics of Queensland bioregion. He inhabits a World Heritage Area that is home to a number of rare and threatened species.

He is illustrated here perched upon his favourite species of native ginger. Pleated Ginger (Alpinia arctiflora) is found only in the rainforests of Tropical North Queensland and bears fruit that is usually eaten by Cassowaries. It is one of only three ginger species native to Australia. Brian likes to sip on the sweet nectar of the Pleated Ginger's white flowers. He also really, really likes overripe bananas!

With the purchase of your artwork you also receive a native Australian tree planted in your name. This initiative is part of CNCF’s various forestation projects that sequester carbon whilst helping to restore degraded land and conserve the natural biodiversity of Australia. Your tree is a carefully selected native species that supports natural ecosystems and wildlife. You will receive both a physical 'Tree Card' and a personalised digital certificate under the name you enter at the checkout. If you wish to plant your tree in another person's name then please specify at checkout.
