Mice feeding on Sarracenia secretion
Carniv. Pl. Newslett. 42(4):129
Published December 2013
This story started a couple of years back when I arrived at my New Zealand greenhouse and found a pair of native nectar feeding birds we call wax eyes (Zosterops lateralis) flying along the inside of the greenhouse and hanging around a group of autumn Sarracenia leucophylla pitchers. I managed to take a couple of very average photos of the wax eyes feeding from the mouths of the S. leucophylla.
