Feeding time on the nest.

I was observing Great Egrets on the nest when the chicks started biting at their parent’s beak , the older chick was notably dominant and larger than the other two. I quickly focused on this behavior and was able to capture some revealing photos of feeding time in the nest and survival of the fittest or largest in this case.
