G'day all.
The Darter chick I'm rearing now has as much raw fish available to it as
it needs, thanks to several donors. It swallows its be-headed mullet
whole and I can clearly see that the the lower jaw dis-articlates, like
that of a python, so it can get the prey past its very narrow bill and
into the throat. Fascinating!
