At our local park pond people throw the ducks some kind of feed pellets. A group of Grackles gathers there, too. and have managed to develop a brief hover maneuver to snatch this food with their beaks.

Awkward and difficult-looking, nevertheless it keeps them from getting their feet wet in the pond scum.
