It is hard to discern what kind of vision these birds possess to catch fish in the tips of their beaks, but they are very proficient fisherman. With a single stab into the shallow water, this black ibis secures a meal that will last but a few moments before it is sent deep into the throat of the ibis. Moments later, it is fishing once again. Success insured.
