The left front of the flowerhead has the tops of the stamens nipped  off.
The culprit sat at the top of the bush ,  singing [ beautifully ]  and laughing at me.
The N Z tui is a native song-bird that is a nectar feeder , hencethey like the waratahs and most other members of the Protea family.
They are around all daff season , usually on  Banksia Intergrifolia , another nectar producer.
They truly make a beautiful chorus.
Try / birds / tui
