CommentI was watching a flock of currawongs for several minutes foraging in casuarina and introduced trees beside the road. A group of birds were also feeding on fallen Plane tree seeds on the side of the road. This bird picked one of the seeds and briefly held it in its beak before letting it drop. I was wondering if it was deliberately picking the seeds to make them easy for the birds below to access.
