Great Blue Heron with a Brown Bullhead (Ardea herodias)

Great blue heron caught a brown bullhead catfish, <i>Ameiurus nebulosus</i>.

The catfish is native to eastern North America but has been planted in the lake for human anglers.

What are the white spiky things mostly to the right of the heron's bill?
