Winter in Otaki has been quite mild,with only a couple of frosts , not very solid at all .However the birds still need a little extra food to keep their energy levels up in the cooler temperatures .My old mum is a keen bird feeder and was told by a friend that they appreciate Bananas during the winter .She has a splendid Banksia in her garden ; it is an Aussie native from the larger protea family and thrives on her sandy section .One of our smallest native birds is the  Waxeye or Silvereye .They come to the Banksia for the nectar it produces but have now developed a taste for BANANAS .I caught them feeding  the other morning .
