A Little Spear Fishing

Earlier this week I was watching an anhinga fishing in the marsh. The anhinga fishing technique is probably my all time favorite wildlife action to view and photograph.

The anhinga will spear a fish on the end of it’s sharp bill but then needs to get the fish off in order to swallow it head down. So the bird will flip the fish up into the air and skillfully catch it one the way down.

Good for the anhinga, bad for the fish.
