Fishy Story

It was a quiet morning at SBWR and I happens to see this egret happily hunting his breakfast.

Fish after fish! They are really good at hunting fish!

Since birds don't have teeth, they swallow their food as it is.

The shape of the fish can be seen clearly and slowly moving down their throat.

The fish finally got aligned and going straight to their stomach.

  1. Amazing capture! So does the unlucky fish basically get swallow down that long/skinny neck alive?? I wonder if it stands a slim chance of escaping or even damaging the birds stomach if eaten in that condition as well?!
