Has anyone seen or know of birds feeding on the fruits of the following plant species? I'm trying to find out if the seeds of these species are dispersed by birds. I'm specifically interested in Gippsland plant species, but will accept sightings of other plant species in the same genus. If you've seen birds feeding on these plants, please let me know directly at <javascript:main.compose('new','t=>

The plants I'm interested in are:
Leucopogon sp. (beard heath)
Astrolobium sp. (cranberry heath)
Acrotriche sp. (honey pots)
Exocarpus sp. (cherry ballart)

Thanks, Lainie Berry
