Pictured: The bird eating the fish.
A peckish bird spends ten minutes using its beak to perfectly line up a huge fish - before swallowing it whole in one impressive gulp. The determined double-crested cormorant took its time manoeuvring the 2ft long alligator gar before devouring it for dinner.
It had just caught the fish in a nearby canal and used its long orange and black beak to move it into its desired position. The clever bird then effortlessly polishes off the 1.5ft long gar in just a matter of seconds. He travelled to the Arthur R. Marshall National Wildlife Refuge in Boynton Beach, Florida, US, to take the photographs.SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.
