It's a good way for herbivores to get some extra protein and calcium, and lots of herbivores will do it. Even deer or goats, sheep and dairy cows will eat small nest eggs and new hatchlings or any small chicks they come across hidden in the the grass while they are grazing. They'll eat mice too.

After an absence, I again tonight saw the hilarious commercial of the elephant buying pistachios. I laugh out loud every time I see it.
