The large bird will flap their imposing beak, anticipating some fish. Throw a fish at them, and they will pick it up in a precise manner with its large pointy beak.
They then raise their head facing the sky, gobble up and down as they balance the fish inside their beak, struggling to swallow. A peculiar way to eat, but beautiful and amusing to watch.
