When you have feathers and are very good at bringing down tasty prey, you then have to become equally good at guarding it.

For instance, let’s say you’ve just manhandled a large prized delicacy to the ground.

But then a potential (featherless) competitor appears.

There are a variety of ways experienced feathery defenders might choose to proceed.

You could act nonchalant (here, think "Prey? What prey?)
You could act nonchalant and pretend there is nothing to defend (as in “Prey? What prey?”)
You could also quickly ingest as much of the prey as possible (if you can leave a large gaping hole down the center that screams "Mine!" even better).
You could also quickly ingest as much of the prey as possible (if you can leave a large gaping hole showing that you’ve eaten the best parts already, even better).
You could also totally distract the encroacher with "prettiness" (this tends to be the preferred technique if you are really pretty).
Finally, you could distract the encroacher with “cuteness” (this tends to be the preferred technique if you are really really cute).
