Heron eats stingray for breakfast; 1st proof that birds eat rays (with video)

“It was perfect timing, right place, right time. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing through my viewfinder when he came up with the ray speared on his bill,” said Dolan, who lives in Mobile and handles national business accounts for the British company Reckitt Benckiser Group PLC, the maker of Lysol.

Dolan happened to have a telephoto lens with him on the beach in Biloxi that morning because he and his wife were on their way home from watching their sons play football for Nichols State University. At the time, in November 2009, one son was the team punter, the other the place kicker.

As it turns out, Dolan’s photos represented the first-ever scientific evidence that birds eat stingrays.
