Hi Terry,

Many species will feed on the pollen of flowering acacias, including Swift
Parrots and Regent Honeyeaters so they are an important source of nutrition
for birds. Bee-keepers will also set their hives near acacias as bees also
take the pollen.

A question for the brain trust............. Do honeyeaters or any other bird
feed on the nectar etc produced by flowering wattle trees ?
