In video: Dolphin 'strand feeding' in the Lowcountry
Folks in the Lowcountry love the occasional dolphin spotting, but even more interesting is when you have the chance to spot them doing a unique hunting technique called "strand feeding."
With the technique unique to the Carolina low marshes, dolphins drive their fishy prey onto mud banks for easy access.
It's a good way to dolphins get dinner and it's also quite a show for us piped mammals.
NBC News 2 did a video report on how it works and the popularity of watching it happen (see that here) and the National Wildlife Federation has a nice feature report on how it works along with some excellent photos (get those here).
There are also a couple of solid videos online that show the technique. Two of those are below with the first showing and overview and the second being a closeup look.
