This is late due to my being overseas.

In my local Aussie patch (Bayside, Melbourne) by far the most productive areas 
were those with several trees/large shrubs of Tree Lucerne/Tagasaste, with the 
nectar attracting at least 9 species of honeyeater, including Fuscous, (plus 
hunting Brown Goshawks!) and Rainbow Lorikeets, and the seeds providing for 
Eastern Rosellas, Galahs, and our largest gatherings of Common Bronzewings. 

A relic of market gardens, most is now gone due to development, aka 
destruction, and I’ve weeded thousands of seedlings out of our precious remnant 
Sandringham Heath.

PS So sorry to see Bush Heritage giving minimal credit to John Young for his 
rediscovery of the Night Parrot.  Tempted not to donate.
