    Those are neat birds to watch. They like to swim under your kayak when the sun is out, it creates a shadow and allows them to see the fish better is what our guide told us several years ago.

    This bird is nothing really special to look at, it's what it was doing when I took the photo that was fascinating.

    This was at a resort in the DR, this bird had a piece of bread and he (she?) was tossing it out into the shallow pond and then allowing the current to catch it and push it past him (her?). When all the small fish chased after the piece of bread, he'd (she'd?) snap them out of the water. Then he'd (she'd?)retrieve the piece of bread and repeat his (her?) "fishing" technique.

    Don't know what kind of bird it is, but I do know that it's a smart one.

    Looks like a snail or something he is eating or did someone throw that to him?

    My wife got bored watching him. I hung around for about 20 minutes watching. I sent her to go get me a gin & tonic (hey, it was hot).

    If you are asking about my shot, it is a fish. They catch and flip them in the air so they go down head first
