Get off me!

We have been kept amused by the behaviour of the Manton Bay chicks today.

This morning the younger sibling appeared to have pinned the older chick down in some kind of wrestling move, or more likely dozed off with a full belly, leaving the older chick trying to wriggle free.

Later on in the afternoon, as 5R bought in another pike and passed it on to his mate to feed their youngsters, the older chick very tenderly put its wing over its younger sibling…before clambering all over it to be the first to get a meal.
