The other day, I saw a Pied Currawong on a Grevillea plant in our backyard and 
it appeared to be pecking at the flowers like a honeyeater does.  I managed to 
video this action and it is on the following site:-

The Readers Digest book states that this bird is an omnivore and eats insects, 
berries etc but does not mention nectar. Currawongs used to be an occasional 
visitor to our backyard in outer Brisbane but over the last two years they have 
been consistantly around.
Can anyone inform me if the Pied Currawong eats nectar or is the bird picking 
unseen insects from the flowers?
