Dear Susan,
I often used to look at Silky oaks in flower to see if anything was
feeding on them, but until the Rainbow Lorikeet influx in Melbourne of
recent years, I NEVER saw any bird feeding on the flowers except the
occasional Starling (which was probably after insects).
  But these days I often see Red and Little Wattlebirds and Noisy Miners
as well as the Rainbow Keets in them! I suppose the original Rainbows
came from further north and already knew about them, and the others
copied them?
