Is this bird damage on my oranges?

I'm relatively sure this is bird damaged, based on my "research," but if anyone who knows growing fruit better than me (ie knows anything) could confirm or dispute that, I'd appreciate it!

Re: Is this bird damage on my oranges?

I don't know ANYTHING about it... but to me those - esp. 1st pic - look more like rodent teeth marks than birds? Additional striations could come from the fruit growing and stretching out the initial ragged damage, I think?
Learning never ends because we can share what we've learned. And in sharing our collective experiences, we gain deeper understanding of what we learned.
