I initially thought this was a young eastern spinebill, but now I'm not so sure. To my eye, I can see red under the beak, chest area?

I think it is an immature male Scarlet Honeyeater

That's what I wondered, but was too unsure to say. There was at least one mature male around the area this time last year, just after the fires.
