Koran-koran

Koran-koran (Noongar LOTE and Kongal-marawar)[1] is called in English the Pied Oystercatcher and its scientific name is Haematopus longirostris. Koran-koran maambakoort-ngat (birds we often see at the sea shore).

The English name is something of a misnomer, because they seldom eat oysters, which are found mainly on rocky coastlines.[2] Koran-koran frequents sandy coastlines, where they feed mainly on bivalve molluscs, which are prised apart with their specially adapted bill.
