g'day all,
If Mistletoe Birds sit, they immediately s*it ?
Several years ago on I observed Mistletoe sprouting from a seed stuck to both -
- a suburban wire mesh fence.
- a strand of a barbed wire fence.
At the front of my house I was intrigued by a clump of very dense mistletoe wobbling like a jelly.
After about 5 minutes a Little Corella emerged at the top.
It had presumably been feeding on the berries.
