I've also seen them at these two sites in June but didn't notice what they
were eating. Not familiar with those strange Queensland trees anyway.

Thanx Elliot,
Nice to hear back from you.

I have also had Eungella HE's at the very end of Dalrymple Rd, and along
Diggings Rd as well - but just not during June at these 2 sites. So, that's
why I was curious about what they were feeding on when you had them at these

And now that you say that it was during June that you have had them there,
I'm even more curious as to what they were feeding on when you saw them. Was
it mistletoe??

I was there in June last year and saw them at those sites, also three other
times throughout the year. I haven't seen them along Snake Rd but in my
experience they are very reliable at the other two sites - particularly at
the end of Dalrymple Rd.

Good luck!

Hey Elliot,
Just a quick one re Eungella HE, if I may... Do you remember the time of
year that you saw them at the very end of Dalrymple Rd, and also along
Diggings Rd??  Do you remember what they were feeding on when you saw them
at both sites??

Thanx in advance for your advice - it's always good to get others' thoughts
on a species that we don't really know all that much about...
