A single Plain Flowerpecker Dicaeum concolor (minullum) borneanum was seen feeding on the fruit of the Scurrula ferruginea (Rusty-leaf Mistletoe).
Food of items I have observed Plain Flowerpeckers feeding on:
- Scurrula ferruginea (Rusty-leaf Mistletoe) – native plant, fruit and nectar feeding
- Melastoma malabathricum (Straits rhododendron) – native plant, fruit feeding
- Other unidentified Mistletoe
- Bridelia tomentosa fruit.
