Thank you kindly...much appreciated.

That heron was very interesting - I wasn't sure what he'd do - but after a long while walking around with it stuck to his bill, he finally put it down on the ground...then cocked his neck up high, beak pointed downward, took big deep breaths in preparation, then slammed down point-first at full speed - the sound of him stabbing the fish could be heard from a hundred yards.  He did that 10 times or more, until he had jaggedly cut the fish into two - then picked up and swallowed each half (which still looked like it was going to get stuck in his throat).  The other little birds came in and picked up the pieces and debris left behind from the violent hacking!
