D. In the name of parenting, certain cuckoos and cowbirds resort to bullying and destruction of host parents’ eggs, forcing many birds, when their eggs are rejected by the host birds,--> wrong, meaning change

E. In the name of parenting when host birds rejected their eggs, certain cuckoos and cowbirds resort to bullying and destruction of host parents’ eggs, forcing many birds---> incorrect, meaning change, modifier error
