Hungry Bird Grabs Snack From School of Fish Off Southampton Coast

A hungry bird nabbed itself a tasty snack courtesy of a school of fish off the coast of Southampton, New York, drone footage shows.

The video, captured by local drone photographer Joanna L Steidle, shows the bird trying to gobble down a large fish, before heading back into the school to try to grab another.

“If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again,” Steidle quipped in the video’s YouTube caption.

She also noted in the caption that the bird is a double-breasted cormorant, which, she said, is “known to be [a] voracious fisherman”. Credit: Joanna L Steidle via Storyful
