The Blue-faced Honeyeater is a large honeyeater with patch of blue skin around the eye. It has black head and face. The back and wings are olive green, and the underparts are white. Juvenile birds are similar to the adults but have yellow-green skin around the eye.
Often nests in abandoned nests of other birds - they usually add to the nest and reline it. Sometimes they build a new nest which is a round cup of rough bark, linked with finer bark and grass. Two or three eggs are laid.
