Here where we don't normally have deciduous trees Misletoes are often just seen as an abberation of part of the host plant. But there are 89 species of Mistletoe here, 74% of them are endemic. The majority of them are of the genus Amyema. There's lots flowering just now. The Mistletoe Bird, Dicaeum hirundinaceum, eats the fruits of all Mistletoe species and quite amazingly has developed the habit, with its toilet functions, of wiping its behind on the tree branch. This way the Mistletoe seed is sure of being stuck on the tree rather than falling on the ground. "Nature" thinks of everything.
