Ken, what an eye-opener this article has been for me. I'm going to be searching for mistletoe everywhere I go now. There are Mistletoebirds in the local area. Knowing what to look for will be a great help. Thank you.
Very interesting. We had a gum tree with loads of Mistletoe on it, far too close to our house on the next property. All during the drought ( it was a long one but about 4 years of this time) I watched as the lorrikeets came each morning during the late winter to feed from the mistletoe flowers as there was little else in flower at that time of year. It certainly kept them going at their usual incredible speed.
