Re: Nest parasitism



AMNH has on display (casts) of two Mongolian specimemns 
1. Oviraptor Embryo
2. Dromeosaurid skull with egg shell sections stuck to it.

Both items were found in the same nest.  I don't have the refs for these
right at hand, but Brood Parasite Behaviour is one of several
explanations of how this ocurred.  It may also have been there eating
the eggs of the Oviraptor, or perhaps was brought there as food by the
Oviraptor.
