Does anyone know what this bird is and is it carrying a shark? That was a question asked on social media four days ago. Little did anyone know what a great question and video it was. Ashley White, from Erwin, Tennessee, filmed the action from her level 17 hotel balcony in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina June 22.
Currently the video has over 28 million views on Twitter and has been shared on almost every social media platform. Requests to use White’s video are coming in from across the globe even as far away as Japan.
So what makes the video so special? Watching a huge unknown species of bird carrying a fish that kinda looked like a shark, flying above the beach is not something you see everyday. In its own right, it is amazing footage, but does it earn 28 million views and countless comments and speculations as to the identity of the bird and fish?

The great blue heron, majestic and graceful animals that are relatively easy to spot but a tad bit more difficult to photograph.
Here's one from a few weeks ago that I really liked. This is an Ovenbird. Fun name, right? They're very pretty in a somewhat subtle way. They've got a beautiful orange and red crown and a not at all subtle call. Easy to hear in the woods but not always easy to spot as they tend to hang closer to the ground, foraging along the floor under thick brush. I caught this one in a quick moment when it made an appearance higher up.
Around 386 species of mammal are found in #Australia , around 7% of the world’s total, however 87% of these species are endemic to Australia and 20% of them are considered threatened. The name mammalia was coined by Carl Linnaeus in 1758, from the Latin mamma, which means “teat”, from the characteristic of all mammals in that they suckle their young with “milk” produced by the female. There are 3 main mammal groups: monotremes, marsupials and placentals.
