Hello Andrew,

If you look at my website under Black-headed Honeyeater you'll find a picture 
(584208D) of a bird collecting an old cigarette butt - this one is a fairly 
weathered filter tip and I doubt very much whether  there would be much 
residual nicotine. To my mind the attraction in this case is simply the fibrous 
nature of the material.

Happy New Year

Graeme Chapman
