Nesting Crows Pester Panda

Eating and sleeping is pretty much what giant pandas do, and this guy takes his duties seriously. He cannot be distracted even when a crow comes and pulls his fur out! The crow is soon joined by another, and together they pluck fur to line their nests. The panda don’t care! Watching this, it occurred to me how convenient it is that birds build their nests in the spring, just as mammals shed their winter coats. This was recorded last spring at the Ueno Zoo in Tokyo.
