      The Department of Sustainability & Environment (DSE) Central Library
here in Victoria Pde., East Melbourne has the following titles listed for
the Superb Parrot.  Some of them probably mention diet etc.  Of course the
HANZAB (1999, Vol. 4, p. 287->, diet p. 290) is the most up to date

I would imagine you could get some of them via interlibrary loan.
Telephone the DSE Call Centre on 136 186 to contact the DSE library with
just a local call.

Note that the species is listed under the Flora and Fauna Guarantee Act and
their is a short Recommendation Report (as a pdf file) showing how the
taxon meets the criteria under the Act, which is available to interested
people.  Just contact me directly.

cheers, Martin
