I found an area in the Anglesea Heath about 4 months ago where the grass trees where in flower...absolutly stunning!
If its any indication of what might be attracted to them, i saw the following species actively feeding on them:
White Eared Honeyeater
Also in the area, and seen perched on the grass trees:
Superb Fairy Wren
No doubt a lot more honeyeaters would have been attracted to them. Tawny Crowneds were heard in the area.
Hi to Victorian Birdos and those that live near Melbourne.
If you are down Morninton Peninsula way go to Green's Bush (Mornington Peninsula National Park)-Two Bays Track between Limestone Rd and Greens Road (Enter Hislops Rd or Greens Rd). The Grass Trees are if full flower and there are literally hundreds of them. I've never the likes of them - evidence of fire though the area in last 12 months. Didn't see any great sightings of Honeyeaters but surely they must be there sometime. Also some great Orchids at Limestone Rd end bit they may not last long.
