Dinner To Go
This anhinga caught himself a nice size fish and decided to take it to go. Well almost…
Anhingas fish by swimming under water and spearing a fish on the end of their sharp bill. Then normally they flip the fish up off their bill and eat it right there in the water while swimming along. It’s possible for the bird to flip a fish and lose it back into the water. This guy must have decided he didn’t want to take any chances with the evening’s main course so he took it out of the water, climbed up onto the grassy bank at the edge of the marsh, and finished his entrée on land.
The anhinga didn’t end up going too far with his takeaway meal, but it was more of an order to go then usual!
