Yellow-crowned Night Heron Regurgitating Crayfish

Yesterday I posted a video and a photo of a Yellow-crowned Night Heron Eating A Crayfish. Today I want to share a video and a photo of an immature Yellow-crowned Night Heron Regurgitating Crayfish. If you notice in the video, the Heron regurgitates several whole crayfish and what looks like undigested parts of a crayfish. It picks the whole crayfish back up and swallows it but leaves the undigested stuff.

The great Yellow-crowned Night Heron swallows its food whole, and later will regurgitate the undigested parts.
