Nothing a little manny likes in the morny more than a generous slurp of green slime, as shown by Nutmeg Mannikin (Lonchura punctulata) in Tyto yesterday.
Champion stuff also for Chestnut-breasted Mannikin (Lonchura castaneothorax). Funnily, finches appear to have no appetite for pond scum. No accounting for taste. (Such as mine for Marmite, victim of the Christchurch quake tragedies. Toast won't be the same till supply is restored. Vegemite doesn't cut it. Doesn't even spread!) Click pix to enlarge
