Are King Parrots particularly fond of mistletoe ?

I wonder because today one was recorded feeding on it in
Sandringham and there is one posting on birding-aus (from
Barry McClean this April) with an observation of "a pair
quietly eating mistletoe seeds" at Violet Town.

Here in the City of Bayside they are rare visitors mainly in

Pity Ian Dowling has just gone walk about as I would like to
know if those recent records from the Mornington Peninsula
are associated with mistletoe.
