Who ate it?

Did you know that you can identify which cockatoo or parrot species has fed upon a Marri nut (Corymbia calophylla) based on the marks left by the lower mandible and the level of chewing?

The WA Museum has prepared an information sheet that illustrates Marri nuts fed upon by a number of species including Carnaby's cockatoo.
