Anhinga Eats Big Fish (Graphic)

Most of us question how a bird, like an Anhinga, eats those big fish. Well, this is how (a step by step guide but don’t try this at home).

I turned my head and just caught the moment this Anhinga broke the surface with his catch. The first image caught all the glare from the sun and weeds but it was perfect timing to catch this.

    1. Don’t know if you received my reply. But thanks. It’s so easy to catch up later at night with my IPad, but I think it’s no longer satisfied with making me look foolish by changing the words I type, now it’s attacking entire messages. Thanks again, maybe for the first time.

    1. Yes, the header photo was caught in the sun glare, thought about skipping it but it seemed to be important to the series. Many times they do look like a stick. Unlike most water birds these have no oil on the feathers to keep them dry. After a few dives they are completely wet, like wearing a wet shirt. At that time they climb out of the water, hold their wings open to the sun, and dry off.

    1. It certainly is different. Most of the large birds in the marshes and swamps will eat fish like this. A large 5 foot heron will eat a fish larger than we order in a restaurant. Of course we cook them and take smaller bites.
