I drove over by the Max Brewer causeway for a few minutes this morning to see if any birds were around. I was of course wishing I had enough time to visit the very near by MINWR, but I didn't today. I found this one lonely White Ibis doing some crab fishing in the shallow river water.
I've observed White Ibises consuming a variety of things, but never a crab.
The Ibis had an interesting technique for consuming the crab.
It spend quite a bit of time crushing and disassembling the crab.
As the Ibis removed the legs of the crab, it would drop them into the water.
The Ibis then dropped the body of the crab into the water and retrieved all the legs.
