I live on a road lined with Silky Oaks, and have one in the garden, they are largely ignored by nectar feeding birds. I have seen the odd Rainbow or Musk Lorikeet having a feed, and about fifteen years ago young starlings in flocks fed on the nectar. It seems to me that the nectar is too thick and glutinous to be attractive to the usual run of honeyeaters we have here, they prefer the thinner variety and smaller quantities available in the Eucs, Correas, and other types of Proteacea plants in the garden.   Duncan Fraser, Maffra Vic.
