Remarks :We saw a Rufous Treepie foraging. It saw the snack pack. Then it tried to get the food out of it. First it picked it up from below and then turned it upside down. When the food came out, the Rufous Treepie ate it. It repeated the same procedure many times. The Rufous Treepie turned the packet from all sides until all the food had come out from that pack. At last, when nothing more was coming out, it left the pack and ran away. - PM
