Nobody Likes A Muddy Fish
Yesterday morning we were watching a small group of white ibis fishing in the salt marsh at low tide. Normally, the ibis only catch and eat small fish, shrimp or other tiny marine crustaceans. But this one boy caught himself a nice size fish which would make an outstanding meal. However, after he took it out of the water and brought it on land to eat, he unfortunately dropped the fish into the mud. Well this is no good…no one wants to eat a muddy fish! So he brought it back over to the water to give it a quick rinse. Once that was accomplished, he proudly showed off his nice clean, bright, fish to his friends!
