Cockatoo.
Fark.
You'd think someone going by "Redtail" would've got that!?
Mind you, unusual for a red-tailed black to do that.
Most likely a Baudin's.

Did you see the culprit?
I was thinking a Black Cockatoo as well, but they have only attacked the fallen limb, trying to see if the rest of the tree has similar trunk marks!

if it only the fallen limb, is it a land based animal? Deer, Goat or Sheep?

:unsure::unsure:

It is land based most of the time...

Saw the culprit and even though Cockatoo does rhyme, it ain't correct.

Kangaroo is the correct answer! Saw them around the tree and looking it up they will eat bark. Why on a fallen tree I don't know, perhaps it has something to do with the orientation and being able to strip it easier. I'm surprised I haven't seen it on other non fallen trees, or perhaps I haven't noticed.
