Dear all,

I have observed Blue-faced Honeyeaters regularly nesting in palm trees at the 
Albury Campus of Charles Sturt University and wondered why this should be the 
case.  They appeared to incorporate the fibrous material from the trunk and 
fronds of the palm into their nest, but whether this influenced the choice of 
nest site I'm unsure.
