Thousands of them in this garden GD. Locally known as "gendarmes". In our garden they congergate in big huddles. They like malva seeds - loads of wild ones here - and hibiscus fruits and we have several of those two. They'll eat the eggs of other insects too - hope that includes cabbage whites and aphids!
