I would like to discuss this video:

What was that at 1:36 in the video. I´ve flaged this with "nest defence"&"educational".
It looks like, that the incubating Bird has banned feeding to the other bird.

This is an interesting observation. Good catch. These birds are a colonial nesting species. I suspect that the bird which flew by with food was from another pair that nested nearby this nest. It will be interesting to note if any other videos like this are found.
