Stick with it.

The blue rings here in Melbourne do not break.  I'm sure these are Pura
but, naturally, I'm not in the position right now to check, nothing but
cardboard cartons in the fridge here.  Were the complaints only coming from
NSW and no need as seen to change them elsewhere.  There are certainly
Satin Bowerbirds in other states and no doubt they are also keen on blue

Other bowerbirds are likely to be attracted to yellow rings but any
problems might not be so obvious.  Regent Bowers are difficult to find and
the birds are only common in a few urban centres, the same for Spotted
Bowerbirds.  Have our northern friends any experience with Great Bowerbirds
and milk rings?
