The large E melliodora across the road from us in Kambah, that was visited by the Swift Parrots last autumn, has been in flower for about a week now.  I, too, have only noticed the attraction of bees and butterflies.  I've also noticed a couple of E melliodora at the Kambah adventure playground in flower as well.  I haven't been able to tell if the massive melliodora in the median strip near the Kambah Village is flowering but it is the most spectacular example of the species I've seen in urban Canberra.  If anyone who knows this tree and also knows of another melliodora that might surpass it in size and form, I would love to hear from you on the details of where it is.

[canberrabirds] Yellow Box

Two of the large yellow box trees in our garden are beginning to flower.  Thus far they are "only" attracting bees and butterflies but one lives in hope that a few larger winged animals will turn up for the feast in the near future.  Presumably this event will not be restricted to Carwoola.
