Artist's Description

Why is this introduced tree important to our native birds?
The introduced tree that brings most of the native birds into my garden in Tasmania at the beginning of winter.
It is in flower in summer and winter has a wonderful fruit that only birds appreciate. It is like a big strawberry but is full of seeds.
Because the alpine and sub-alpine trees have been eliminated by forest industries, the birds travel far to feed now and visit this tree. The Carawong love this tree as last year there was 56 Carawong feeding in the tree. I was able to view them and watch the family and community antics happening before my eyes from my bedroom window.
The tree species we have lost also has effected the leather wood industry which Tasmania is famous for its leather wood honey and pepper trees.
