A single Plain Flowerpecker (Dicaeum concolor [minullum] borneanum) was seen feeding on the fruits of the Rusty-leaf Mistletoe (Scurrula ferruginea).
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.
