Sorry for the delay in response, but my informant has been away for a few days.  The Acacias that the Superb parrots were dining on were A dealbata. 

My informant notes that they do not feed in 'green' acacias nearby, which out here I would expect to be A mearnsii rather than A decurrens.

Can you find out what kind of acacia Martin please for those of us who would like to attract them by planting food species for them?
