    Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debate


    The Crimson Finch (Neochmia phaeton) eats mainly seeds of grasses and forbs and some insects and other arthropods. Here, we report repeated foraging by a flock of these finches on nectar obtained from Desert Bloodwood (Corymbia terminalis) flowers, with observations over four days in Boodjamulla National Park, and provide links to videos of them doing so.
