CLEVER CREATURES

Tuesday now so let’s look at this weeks cleaver creature and it is the Mistletoe bird, this bird is the only one known to wipe its bottom on a branch after it has pooped.

It only eats the berries of the mistletoe plant they grow on the branches of other trees, so by wiping its poop which contains seeds on branches it is planting if you like more mistletoe.

The mistletoe bird, also known as the mistletoe flower pecker, is a species of flower pecker native to most of Australia and also to the eastern Maluku Islands of Indonesia in the Arafura Sea between Australia and New Guinea.
