Thanks Geoffrey, helpful as always.
Yes they do vary their diet and I have seen both RBF and DBF in the Casuarinas out the back of my place which border the grasslands.
I still think they need seeding grasses, especially the DBF,. I also think they generally prefer to be near grass and dart back there when disturbed in the shrubbery.
I do think their habitat is particularly disturbed by the loss of grasslands. They are common in the grass along Gininnderra Creek but become less common as you climb up into the more open woodland above there on Percival Hill.
