  • The Corkery Building, Stony Range Regional Botanic Garden, 810 Pittwater Rd, Dee Why

Mick Roderick, the NSW Woodland Bird Program Manager at Birdlife Australia, will present the topic.

Mick Roderick is the leader of Birds Australia’s programme to preserve the critically endangered Regent Honeyeater Roderick believes it is the most important work that  he has undertaken. 

This bird is an important pollinator of many species of Eucalypts, but notably, many species of mistletoes The Regent Honeyeater feeds predominantly on mistletoe nectar Repeated bushfires in recent years have wiped out much of the mistletoes in the Tomalpin Woodlands, the Regent Honeyeater’s key breeding area in the Lower Hunter.   

An article about the Honeyeater and its song is published for Sydney Morning Herald subscribers here.

All welcome.
