Bottom feeders preying on birds? Sounds like a night out in London.

This isn't a new behavior. Catfish will try to snatch anything they think is edible if it gets to close, even from the shoreline.

starlost: why are there dozens of pigeons on that rock and sand bar? my guess is the fisherman on the bridge above are tossing down tons of food to chum both the birds and fish. this is not a normal situation you'd see in the wild. i've seen catfish eat baby ducks and mice that were right at the waters edge but imho you wouldn't have pigeons hanging around rocky shore unless someone tossed food on it often. yes the catfish attacked the bird but normally you wouldn't have pigeons just hanging around water if there isn't food. catfish aren't going to waste their time waiting for the lone bird that flies down to take a quick bath and leaves.

This just in:

Pigeons flock together and drink water!!!

Dick Dastardly and Muttley were later seen approaching the catfish for recruitment.

A Catfish hunter? Well, duh. It's been happening for a long time.

For example, he's seen here striking out an oriole.
