A long time ago we had two fledgling Willy Wagtails in our care, and fed them on meal-worms. Some of the meal-worms turned into beetles, which the birds pursued and ate. They then regurgitated the hard wing-cases.
Pied Currawongs regurgitate Pittosporum seeds and the hard kernels from pomegranates. They also eat the seeds from Currajong pods, but they must be able to digest them completely.
