I am currently reading my way through a long list of science fiction and fantasy titles. (http://www.npr.org/2011/08/07/138938145/science-fiction-and-fantasy-finalists if you are interested in the list).
What is more fun that watching bird babies? Watching one trying to swallow a very large fish:
The youngster begged until mom handed over the fish
Then the struggle began in earnest
But he's not giving up!
It's not too big, dammit!
Success! It's neck was really thick for a while, though, until the fish was finally deposited in the belly.
OMG, I love birds!
