Further to my recent posting on this, below are 3 images - highly cropped and compressed - of 3 honeyeaters 'wound-foraging' on an Apple Box. (A yellow-tufted and 2 fuscous) I can only speculate on the original cause of the wounds - possums, cockatoos, tree-creepers (both Brown and WT in the area), insects, natural splitting, any of those? Do the birds cause further damage to stimulate the oozing? Does the white-eared, which may be more of a specialist, do this?
