Hi all

Just sorting out some of my old magazines and came across an excellent
feature on the Mistletoe bird in Geo 7(2)1985 by Phillip Green. Most of the
content has been discussed here recently however another gem is that the
young MBs are fed the seeds. At toilet time the baby bird pokes it's butt
out of the nest and excretes in multiple packs, four or so seeds, which the
parent dutifully removes from the young posterior. Some great photos as
