I observed two Eastern Rosellas in suburban Canberra today picking over a
pile of ash from a small fire in someone's front yard today. The birds
remianed there for at least ten minutes and appeared to be picking up small
fragments of lightish colored ash and eating them. I expect they were
gaining some nutrient from them.
