Here Fishy, Fishy

Wow, I'm getting a lot of cool videos by following people on Twitter. This one shows a kingfisher grabbing a minnow from a stream. You remember the kingfisher, right? I think our discussion about it included something about Brad Pitt in a River Runs Through It? Not following me? Oh well, it's a very cool bird that dives headfirst into lakes and streams to catch fish. One of my favorite birds, actually. And this video shows it from the perspective of the minnow. Enjoy!

That poor fish didn't know what hit him!! I guess if you have to go like that, at least it's quick.

Wow, that's awesome! Thanks for sharing! :) We'll have to hook up to go birding sometime; do let me know if you're ever down in Utah County and we'll hit the river trails. Cheers!
