Just for interest, Mistletoebirds appear in my Ainslie GBS site (with no eucalypts bearing mistletoes) site as a rule only during the breeding season, for the period when they feed nestlings also insects. They search in the American oaks in our street  for caterpillars of a leaf-mining moth (the latter also a target for several other birds).
