Heron fishes for ... a squirrel?

A great (big) blue bird -- a force of nature. In water these coastal wetland birds hunt their prey. And on a coastal bluff along the Moonstone Beach boardwalk? Partially explanation given at this website:

(Excerpt) "... herons have been known to choke to death by attempting to swallow fish too large for their long, S-shaped necks. Though they are best known as fishers, mice constitute a large part of their diet, and they also eat insects and other small creatures (emphsis added)."

"... other small creatures"
Apparently this CAN include squirrels ...
