Crawfish Lover

This yellow-crowned night heron has just caught a crawfish and is preparing to eat its tender parts. Shortly after I took this photo, it dropped the crawfish after eating almost none of it. I wondered why it did that. Maybe it decided the crawfish didn't taste good, had parasites, or something. In any case, it killed the crawfish.
