Chestnuts love their greens
Chestnut-breasted Mannikin (Lonchura castaneothorax) shows signs of breakfast at Tyto today.
The birds love the long green threads of a water plant (unidentified, by me!). It thrives in shallow pools and temporary creeklets after flood waters recede, but does not for several weeks attract the mannikins.
Nor does it draw Crimson Finches, Nutmeg Mannikins or Red-browed Finches, all of which share some similarity of taste with the Chestnuts.
Very different tastes here: Agile Wallaby with Willie Wagtail hanger-on ready to pounce on insects set flying by the browser.
