User's notes

These images are linked to record 4417755 of 'baldy' the male gang gang. Baldy wasn't eating but the female with him was eating wattle seeds. Is the wattle image good enough to identify the species? I can take a closer image if needed.

Thank you natureguy. This post was at the request of Michael Mulvaney who wanted to know what species of wattle the female was eating. Hopefully there is enough detail to identify it.

Thanks Tammy much appreciated. Amongst 2100 food sightings this is teh first I have for Acacia vestita, and I am really glad to have sightings of what a breeding pair are feeding on.
