Since there is lots of mistletoe in Tasmania but no Mistletoebirds I reckon you 
could work that out yourself !

Incidentally this fact helps to prove that Mistletoebirds are quite recent 
arrivals to Australia as Tassie was joined by land to Wilson's Promatory in 
Victoria until the last great global warming (about 16,000 years ago).
