First eye up your victim, then...
Deploy (not so secret) weapon, and...
Don't forget to discard seed wings to attract passing birders.
Look closely at this one.
The specialised bill in action.
The cone is prized open and the bird retrieves the seed with its tongue. You can see the tongue in this photo probing between the scales of the cone, it's incredibly vivid red.
Something I've never seen before! What brilliant birds! :-)
Detail from above photo showing tongue more clearly.
