Do crocodiles eat water birds?

14th May 2011
It's a question that I've been asked regularly by guests over the last couple of years, and I think a question that I asked before I became a guide. The answer is usually 'no' but there's rarely an explanation as to why not! Because of the feathers? Because some birds clean the mouths of crocodiles so the reptiles respect all birds?

I think crocodiles may take any water bird that comes too close, provided that it is the right size. In the northern area of the park recently, I saw this crocodile catch an Egyptian Goose and drag it under water. So that answers the question then.
