This one explains why you see these large birds
grabbing such TINY MINNOWS. Unlike Raptors who tear food into bite size pieces for their young. Egrets just expel whatever they have consumed while hunting. At this stage of there lives the chicks pick at the hodgepodge of fish and WHATEVER ELSE Mom or Dad spits into the nest at their feet. Competition for this partially digested Sushi is at the EXTREME LEVEL ALREADY
The chick who hesitates to dive right in or fight for that last morsel could very well be a statistic in no time. It's a HAESH REALITY of NEST LIFE .

    Amazing detail in the capture and the info is also fascinating. I did not know that the babies' food was regurgitated whole!
