Great Blue Heron gives up Gar to juvenile Bald Eagle.

A Great Blue Heron caught a good sized fish, a Gar.  The only trouble is that Gars have teeth like alligators, and herons usually swallow their catch head first. Uh oh. Then a juvenile Bald Eagle decided he would take the fish. Okay, says the heron. Who’s gonna argue with a bird that’s got 400 pounds of pressure per square inch in his talons?

Bringing Up Baby Robins

Raising baby Robins is trickier than you might think. They can’t digest worms when they first hatch, for example, anymore than a newborn infant could eat filet mignon. So what do they eat? They don’t have diapers. How do the parents keep the nest from getting completely gross in the first two days? After two weeks, each nestling is eating 14 feet of worm a day, so the parents are worm hunting at warp speed.
