The little Green Heron is undeniably one of the most patient hunters in the wetlands.We often see Green Herons, like this one, sitting on a low branch for the longest time, just watching the water below.When he spots a tasty morsel swimming by, he stretches out his neck – his whole body, really! – and . . . . . . . scoops up his prey in a flash!In fact, Green Herons are famous for their amazing fishing prowess. They are even known to ‘bait’ fish by purposely dropping a feather, crumb, or other small object into the water to attract fish. Watch the second half of this Arkive.org video to see an example of this amazing behavior in action!
