Dripping with ‘muskies’

What started out looking like a pretty lean flowering season isn’t going too badly. While the local Grey Box was less than prolific, Yellow Gum (White Ironbark) Eucalyptus leucoxylon is flowering well now and attracting the usual hordes of nectar-dependent species. This roadside tree near Strangways, was dripping with Musk Lorikeets yesterday, accompanied by Noisy Miners and White-plumed Honeyeaters. Interestingly the miners weren’t harassing the lorikeets – outnumbered I reckon.
