BPW: Tufted Duck feast

One of the best place to watch birds in the Netherlands is the Oostvaardersplassen. Arthur and I spent some time there this weekend – our first visit in about two years. This juvenile Tufted Duck caught my attention – s/he was busy hunting and feeding for at least a half hour.

    I’m not sure what it’s eating, some kind of shellfish I suppose?

    Wow! Does it just swallow the shell whole?

    Great shots Amy! It looks like it’s eating a clam to me.
