Yesterday afternoon I witnessed and photographed a Canvasback duck catch 4 fish in a 6 minute time span close to the St. Clair river shoreline at Guthrie Park, Corunna. Its action of thrashing the fish in the water caught the attention of 2 Red-necked Grebes that harassed the Canvasback for its catch. By winning tugs-of-war they managed to steal 3 of the 4 fish from the Canvasback.
