My eyes were bigger than my stomach….
I hear that often when dining with friends. In the wild the critters fools us. They can take on some big meals. I’ve witnessed it many times. One in particular is the California Gull. Found in great numbers in Utah. These guys can take on a meals that appear greater than just the shear size of their throats. Recently at FBBR the annual carp kill has taken place. The carp are floating everywhere some near death and putting in their last efforts…….
The Gulls are out in numbers sizing up the free meals. Amazing to watch them pick fish that seem too large to intake. The Gull will make several attempts to ingest. Sometimes they give up. Other times they succeed…..
