I caught this little guy just after he had gotten a Crayfish (Crawfish, or Crawdad, depending on where you come from). It was quite a mouthful, and, after several shaking and flailing attempts, finally got it down. Check out the size of his throat on the last picture.

By the way, anyone have an ID of what kind of bird this is?

Thanks for looking.

It's a pied-billed grebe.
