Hi out there in birdland
Our Tree Ferns are being destroyed by Crimson Rosellas. They nibble the fronds and take them right off - my wife is about to divorce me if it doesn't stop. They have always chewed a bit but this year they have gone mad and the ferns are a mess. What nourishment do they get out of the ferns. I've always understood them to be toxic. They only seem to tackle the mature fronds. Any ideas.
