About Green Herons:

Tricks for easy dining

Green HeronThe Green Heron freezes almost motionless on the shore, peering carefully into the shallow water to await its prey which includes small fish, invertebrates, frogs, and insects.  

The Green Heron may even deliberately drop a bait such as small insect, twig, or feather on the waters surface to attract small fish.  This behavior makes the Green Heron one of the few known tool-using birds.

While the Green Heron is common in wetlands throughout much of North American, it stands so still, that it may be difficult to see.  Keep a sharp lookout for this little fisher.
