Tricolor in breeding plummage Pie-billed Grebe Anhinga Family of Three at feeding time
This larger chick is the sole survivor of a clutch of three. There is a dead chick next to it in the nest.
Chicks put their entire heads down the parents' throats - and this one winds up with a whopping big fish for its efforts.

While eating his catch, a blue jay repeatedly bombarded this guy, which reacted to the jabs about as much as it would a fly.

HERDING FISH IN POND
A gang of birds would herd the fish from one end of the little ditch to the other, scooping them up as they did so. There were 3 snowy egrets, a male hooded merganser and 3 females, a male blue-winged teal, and a white ibis engaged in this activity.
