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!

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?
