Cattle Egret wrestling with a frog

118 2


Cattle Egrets are a rare sight in Ontario, and Canada. This one was observed in a horse pasture, looking for insects that the horse's hooves had stirred up. When it had the option of chowing down on a Green Frog, it pounced on it immediately. After a few minutes of wrestling with the frog, to get it head first down its beak, it successfully swallowed it, then continued looking for more food.
