Amazing video. I didn't expect house mice being so agresive eaten alive chicks. I found a mouse in the middle of a Peruvian diving-petrel colony in Peru, but I thought they may be feeding on carcasses. This video showed me that I must pay more attention on the impact mice may have on the PDP population.
