There is no free lunch!

I came across this American Bittern at the Ridgefield NWR on Apr. 1, 2011.  It had already been working on this snake, which had tied its tail around a weed at some point before the snake lost consciousness.  By the time I arrived and began shooting this video, the snake was barely moving.  But it had miraculously tied its tail onto a branch.  If you don’t have time to watch all 9 minutes, skip ahead and check out the last minute or so.  But if you have time, it’s fun to watch the effort expended by this bird.
