A nearby marsh has been very busy with Anhinga and Cormorants fishing. This day all we need do was wait. Sooner or later a ‘head popped up’ and another bird had made a catch.
Unlike the swamps the fish here are bigger.
This is actually a size fairly easy for an Anhinga to swallow. Not that it doesn’t take time.
All the while the Anhinga was working on eating the fish he is looking all around for trouble. Herons and Egrets will jump right in and steal this fish if he takes too long.
This one he was able to keep, but they were heading for the steal as he finished his meal and ducked back under the water.
