How to lose nest building material

Discussion in 'Birds' started by DanielD, Apr 29, 2007.

  1. Instead of heading directly to the nest this cormorant did a little showing off with his new aquired branch - thereby attracting a rival...

    147894971-O.

    147895004-O.

    147895039-O.


    After some back and forth the branch eventually broke into two pieces, leaving the poor cormorant with the shorter end:

    Thanks for looking.

    Hilarious Daniel. I believe that's called snatching defeat from the jaws of victory!

    Great behavior series! I guess it's true that nobody likes a showoff even in the bird world.

    Great series, I'm laughing at Gale's 'short end of the stick' :) 
     
  11. Thanks all.
    Guess there's some meaning of 'short end of the stick' that I don't know. :redface::confused:
