"Pied billed" grebe swallows fish

Determined grebe swallows huge fish

Oscar Palmquist and his wife Jone were walking along the canoe canal when they spotted this diving bird. It was determined to be a "pied-billed" grebe, and they saw it had caught a fish. After a few moments, it maneuvered the fish around so it could swallow it, head first. Oscar managed to get a few photos with a long telephoto lens. The type of fish is not known.

Oh wow nice capture! So did the little guy manage to fully gulp down that entire thing? Was the fish able to put up and fight, was it flapping all the way?! Keep it up! Respond: Mexicankyle35@gmail.com
