Whether driving or cruising on a boat along the Chobe River, herons are is a commom sighting, especially the grey heron. On this day around 8am we were lucky enough to witness a grea heron eating a red billed oxpecker. We were unlucky not to see how it caught it as we only arrived when it was trying to swallow it. The oxpecker got stuck in the throat for almost 30 minutes while we wwere atching. The heron dipped its whole head in the water time and again until it swallowed the oxpecker before flying away.
