The shape in the entry was wrong and the nest was shaking again as the creature outside entered the nest and grabbed one of the waiting chicks. It was a hand, but to the chicks it was a predator. The trio of remaining chicks backed up as far as they could into the nest, mouths open in low hissing.
The hand returned, patting around for the remaining chicks. The chicks shifted back and forth, trying to avoid it, with the two behind Crash beginning to dig at the interior wall of nest. There was another way out, but Crash was turned away from them. The hand landed on him and gripped him awkwardly. Crash bit at the hand, but it was covered in a thick rubber glove.
