Taken at Vierra Wetlands, I caught this guy doing the Reznick flip. i noticed that he has a film that comes down over his eye when eating, wonder if this happens to Ron when he eats???

This is the Reznick Flip. A bird is fishing, catches something, and Ron found that they flip it in the air before swallowing. If you time it, you can catch the food mid beak. We've named shots catching that event after Ron.

Hi MIke,
Great shot for sure.

Looks like is trying to spit something out he did not care for. Wonder what it is. Blow up the original and see if you can tell what it is. Don't look like no "fish"

cheers

The eye film is called a 'nictating membrane', and as you might assume, is used primarily to protect the eye, and also to assist in distributing moisture via blinks.
