A big appetite
I stopped briefly this morning to figure out what on earth this Great Blue Heron had caught and was trying to eat. It was HUGE...and ugly!
I hope it managed to get the fish turned around before swallowing it. I was recently informed that herons/birds must eat fish head first to prevent it from getting lodged in their throats or pricked by spines. Heck, this fish looks like it has some big teeth too!
