"brute" for brood

The single-minded devotion of nesting birds suggests the use of brooding for those who nurse their worries and dwell on their problems. On the other hand, other beasts can be equally preoccupied and uncommunicative. Maybe brutes can worry a subject until they do themselves damage. The animal magnetism of “dark bruting looks” works best.
