Thanks for sharing Steve - more wonderful footage! I love how the birds do the splits while feeding in clumps of leaves blowing around! Such dexterity!

I have loaded some videos of the swift parrots at Callum Brae feeding.
One of the eight videos was stuck in processing last time I looked but the other seven should be viewable.
Interesting. My impressions after 2 visits to C Brae was (item for item) lerps 75%, buds 20%, blossom (nectar) perhaps 5%. Below is poor photo but hard to imagine more lerps than showing here. It takes longer to deal with a single bud because it is held and squeezed, not swallowed.
I looked closely at David's excellent video from Callum Brae, expecting to see lerps on the foliage. There were few and only a few frames
showed a swiftie obviously gleaning - most seemed to be nipping off developing flower buds, as reported from Mt Ainslie.

Thanks Steve, they're still here feeding in the gums.
