Anhinga Fishing This Morning

The anhinga is a water bird. It fishes by swimming under water and spearing a fish on the end of it’s sharp bill.

It then needs to shake the fish off it’s bill in order to eat it. So the anhinga will often flip the fish in mid air, catching it head down for easier swallowing.
