Fish for dinner

My wife and I witnessed this Great Blue Heron catching and attempting to eat a large fish the other evening after a strenuous canoe trip on the Charles River.
The heron eventually succeeded after several unsuccessful attempts. The fish was larger than the heron's head and consuming it seemed to be a very specialized art that required precise placement, a little body english and a careful use of gravity to get the dinner to slide (awkwardly) down the hatch. I wonder what a good wine would be to serve with that?
Bon appetit Monsieur Heron!
