Hi All,

         We have a large potted camellia outside our kitchen window with 
strongly scented  pink flowers that are very attractive to at least one Eastern 
Spinebill in particular, which returns every hour or so, especially early in 
the mornings and late afternoon . Also a couple of times a day a Yellow-faced 
Honeyeater and a Lewins  feed on the flowers. They like a smaller scented white 
camellia too.

        Also see a Lewins  swallowing one or two White Cedar berries every now 
and then, but has trouble getting them down, almost seems to choke on them.  
Pied Currawongs love them, regurgitate the seeds into our ornamental  pools.
