E12 bites E13, not nice. Before H gave E12 a little head push without intention, maybe that was the occasion for the aggression towards E13.

Harriet feeds E12 with some leftovers.

It didn't look like remains - I would have been happy to get such cleaned meat on my grill - M15 made a bargain :mrgreen:

Birdfriend, you may be very right, i saw a scene exactly like this a few days before and had the same assumption. Thanks for mentioning and pictures.

I have often found that E12 immediately goes into aggressive defense when only touched, if by a parent or by E13, while E13 -Harriet has already pushed E13 too without intention- takes the defensive submission pose.

It is very nice that those beetles don't touch or harm the birds - only their food remainings :whistling:

It's midnight and I come with great interest and curiousness
to see Your wondrous repots from 9th Jan
and I shout: THAN YOU SO MUCH !
Pictures of Liz01, Birdfriend, Owlie, are so cute.
Just maybe I don't think the picture link that Owlie last
forwarded is - so cute
... (beetles)

Right now on the nest Parent feeds kids tearing bites from
some mammal, not squirrel, not rabbit... something else.
So all is well at 5.30 p.m. cam time :D .
