Thanks Helen.
                       I don't suppose that you know of any sites for 
F.racemosa do you?
                       The parrots would feed on any ripe figs, not just 
cauliflorous ones, but if feeding on tree trunks they might be easier to see 
than in the canopy.
                       It might be a question of overlapping fruiting times 
that determines their rarity, if all the lowland figs fruiting at a particular 
time of year have been cleared for agriculture, and figs elsewhere don't fruit 
at that time, the fig-parrots are in trouble.
