Eastern Spinebills

Eastern Spinebills are tiny honeyeaters that have slender necks or no necks, that are rotund or thin depending on their pose and the lighting conditions. Such differences can make bird identification tricky, especially for new birders. At least Eastern Spinebills have a unique bill but even that can appear fore-shortened at times.
