Wp/nys/Koran-koran (Pied Oystercatcher)
Koran-koran (Noongar LOTE and Kongal-marawar) 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. Koran-koran frequents sandy coastlines, where they feed mainly on bivalve molluscs, which are prised apart with their specially adapted bill.
