Road Tripping, Coeur d’Alene Idaho~

Will I look fat if I eat this whole fish?
Errrr, no, but, but you might look a little weird if you swallow it whole.
On second thought, you are looking a tad chunky……
and weird!
It’s a gull eat fish world out here in Cour d’Alene!
We are road tripping again, and our next stop is Glacier National Park. I haven’t been able to read your blogs as much as I would like to since we are traveling, but cheers to you from the happy, albeit quite chubby, gull from Coeur d’Alene!

  1. Excellent series here! I have never witnessed such an event before. That looks like a big fish formidable fish staring down its captors throat here! So in the end the bird was really able to win the struggle and gulp down the whole thing entirely okay?? If eaten, does the unlucky/desperate fish get swallowed wriggling all the way as well?!


    • Actually, the fish is dead before it gets swallowed. I have another series of a crane with a huge catfish in Africa that was the same. The bird kills the fish first so the fish goes completely limp and then swallows it. I still do not understand how this gull managed to swallow this fish whole. I hesitate to get super graphic but I suspect he may have swallowed it and flown off somewhere private where another gull couldn’t steal his prize, reguritated the fish, tore it up, and ate it. And I do agree with you, poor fish!
