How big is too big?

We humans have a tendency to bite off more than we can chew. Apparently birds do too.

This seagull at Canaveral National Seashore in New Smyrna Beach caught a small fish in the shallow water but although the fish isn't large, it was too big for him to swallow whole.

Watching the video you can almost see his mind working.  "Shall I peck it to pieces or toss it in the air and try to get it down my throat?"  Such are the dilemmas of life in the wild.
