Amidst all the staging, a double-crested cormorant captured a fish. The bird had pierced the body of the fish clean through. When it surfaced and tried to reposition the fish for better swallowing, a young ring-billed gull thought, "Hey, cormorant, your fish is relevant to my interests."
The cormorant struggled with the fish and the gull jockeyed for position and a game of bird and fish ensued.
Finally, the cormorant dove below the surface and waited for the gull to lose interest. Then resurfaced and swallowed the fish.
