I observed the family interact for over an hour. I noted that just about every time one of the parents had finished feeding the nestling the nestling would push the parent bird away with a pretty good jab from its beak.
Here is a link to a 34 second video of the action. You can see the nestling jab one of the parents after being fed.
I posted the link to this video in an earlier post so some of you may have already seen it.
