One time on Lake Calhoun in Minneapolis I watched a Pied-billed Grebe
attempt to eat a Sunfish it had caught. I watched it for about 20 minutes
trying to position the fish in a way that it could eat it. The fish however
looked taller than the Grebe's throat was wide. It dropped it several times,
each time retrieving it. I had to leave so I didn't know if the Grebe ever
succeeded, but I doubt it.

Subject: [mou-net] Video--baby Brown Thrasher vs. Garter Snake

St. Louis County near Floodwood; June 12

Came upon a bizarre scene while doing bird surveys for the DNR.

A recently fledged Brown Thrasher had evidently been fed a 12-inch long baby
Garter Snake by its parent.

It was trying valiantly to get the snake down when....

Well, the video will show what happened next. Anyone seen anything similar?
