Abstract
Several anecdotes exist of wading birds depredating invasive Monopterus albus (Asian Swamp Eel) in waterways of the conterminous US. We present photographic evidence of 4 different wading bird species depredating adult Asian Swamp Eels in Georgia and Florida herein. Photographs taken by wildlife enthusiasts could provide a means for early detection of the Asian Swamp Eel and other aquatic species that are challenging to detect in waterways.
