Oh fascinating! That must be some hungry bird! Still, it seems difficult to me that the Pelican can (does it compete with the other birds here too?) deal with this large fish! So the bird was actually able to fit (lined up straight here/swallowed alive?!) that whole thing down its long/skinny throat completely somehow?? I have never witnessed an event like this before. I feel somewhat perplexed over how it actually happens, wouldn't the large fish stand a chance of escaping or even damaging (it’s sharp fins, wriggling, biting, etc.) the bird's throat/stomach if eaten in that condition?! It’s hard for me to imagine that the formidable-looking fish (wouldn't the prey also go into a desperate "survival mode" once it realized that it hit the stomach?) doesn't turn around inside the elastic gullet and how the bird can keep down/digest such an object with no issues? I don't have much knowledge about these events and am mostly curious, I appreciate any feedback/explanation. Sorry for all of the questions, have a good week ;)

Deb Fedeler replied:

Sorry I took so long to get back to you. It has been busy. Amazingly, the bird does simply line the fish up with the throat and swallow it down. The muscles contracting around the fish in both the esophagus and stomach will keep the fish immobile until it dies (hopefully very quickly). The birds seem to position the fish to go head first down the throat. In that direction, the fins will be folded back against the fishes body and be relatively safe for the fish. I have seen the fish slowly travel down the neck of the pelican as a huge bump. It is both interesting and a little creepy to watch the fish being swallowed! I have seen fish fight their way out of that huge pouch, but the pelican seems very able to get most of its prey down. It can be quite a fight sometimes; a sight to see! It is also fascinating to watch a group of birds work together to catch fish. They will swim closely in a bunch of 20 to 50+, wing to wing, and the group will dip their heads into the water in synchrony. They repeat this action until the group "herds" a bunch of fish into a group, and then the pelicans will circle the fish group and multiple birds will usually get a meal from this activity. Very cool to watch! That is about all I know from my observations of pelicans. I always look forward to seeing them in the spring so I can learn more about them. No problem with the questions. That is how we learn, right? Have a good day!

Fascinating capture here too! That looks like a giant fish (you know what kind and can you see it thrashing about inside the pouch?) caught and staring down its captor's throat here! So could the pelican really manage to win the bird battle and then gulp that whole thing down entirely okay? Does the fish put up a good fight, if eaten, does the unlucky prey get swallowed wriggling all the way as well?!

Deb Fedeler replied:

I'm not sure what kind of fish the pelican caught, but catfish and trout are common in that area. Yes, you can see the fish struggle in the pelican's pouch, but most of the time the bird gets the fish lined up quickly to go down the throat and the bird swallows it whole. I have seen the bulge in the neck as a large fish goes down. It can be quite impressive! Usually the pelican wins once in the pouch, but I have seen a couple of fish escape from the bird.

this product was printed incorrectly. One side was facing correctly the other side is inverted by 180 in the wrong direction. It should be replaced because of manufacturing defects!

Always have to have a zip pouch to match a photo tote - such a nice set.
