posted in: Feeding-plants | 0

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:

  1. Scurrula ferruginea (Rusty-leaf Mistletoe) – native plant, fruit and nectar feeding
  2. Melastoma malabathricum (Straits rhododendron) – native plant, fruit feeding
  3. Other unidentified Mistletoe
  4. Bridelia tomentosa fruit.
