Your Crayfish or Your Life! - Snowy Egret

This Snowy Egret has just landed and is trying to intimidate an Ibis into giving up its' just-caught crayfish. The Ibis ignored the Egret and quickly swallowed its' catch. I watched this Egret try to steal crayfish from the 5 or 6 Ibises that were hunting in the little stream, but he was never successful. He did catch a crayfish that the Ibises flushed out from its' hiding place.
