"Far more nectar is available to birds in Australia than on other continents---enough to fight over, and harsh cries assert possession. Australia's eucalypts and paperbarks (Melaleuca) are the only bird-pollinated trees on earth to form vast forests, and wattlebirds and lorikeets are important pollinators of their flowers." (Tim Low, WHERE SONG BEGAN)
