Getting It How He Likes It

On a recent morning this white ibis caught a small crab (which they love) in the salt marsh during low tide.

After catching a crab, an ibis will typically snap off the claws first and usually eat them right away. Then the legs come off one by one until all that is left of poor crabby is a disk like hockey puck shaped structure. The remaining portion can then be wolfed down whole or broken up into small easier to manage bites.

Here the ibis skips that last part and goes right for the pièce de résistance.
