16.28 after a stretch H picked up the catfish and started feeding both,
E12... E13.... E12.... as E13 was going to get the second bite,
E12 was not amused and bonked E13 down - "you have to wait, remember ?" :rolleyes:

E13 stayed submissive, then tried a few times to snatch a bite and also H tried to give him twice, but E12 bonked him down each time. H teared the fish away from E13 to avoid more bonking, but E13 moved over to and got bonked again.

16.40 E13 waited and when already the half fish was eaten by E12, E13 snatched a bite.
After this first bite, E12 threatens E13 with its beak, ...
Image

....but then E13 was allowed to eat, too (watch the crop of E12)
Image

and the fishtail goes to Harriet :laugh:

M then wants to take the remained catfish head carcasse, but H does not allow,
poor M, doesn't get anything :unsure:
Image

M looks for other nestovers, then leaves the nest. H eats some of her fish,
then takes the catfish head carcasse, aaaah, she wanted it too, E13 is watching her....
Image

....and gets a bite :D
Image

H fed E13 also another bite of the fish, then moved over with the fish to other nest side.

18.07 M came back to nest, eyes the remaining fish ....
Image

.....but H doesn't want him to eat that remain, wants to save it and starts to distract him by suddenly working very important in the rails :laugh:

Sure he took his duty and worked together with her, H was displacing a few sticks, M took the big ones and placed them back to the rails
Image

Image

....and he so much would have had this remaining fish :rolleyes:
