I once thought the name of this bird was Little Green Heron because, well. . . . they’re so little, compared to all the large, tall wading Herons we see in the wetlands. As you can see by my Tag Cloud, I’ve written many blog posts about these photogenic Herons – they’re just so charming.
Clever, too!: “The Green Heron is one of the world’s few tool-using bird species. It often creates fishing lures with bread crusts, insects, and feathers, dropping them on the surface of the water to entice small fish.” (All About Birds)
