Friday Fun: Gross Out!

At mating time, a female fieldfare builds a neat nest near the top of a tree. After laying her eggs, she works hard to protect her home. Know what happens if an enemy gets too close? BOMBS AWAY! The devoted mama poops on the predator.

After the chicks are born, their dad gets in on the action. He and his mate take turns feeding the little ones and showering scat on enemies.
