Green Heron Gone Fishin’

Posted by Richard Conniff on August 29, 2012

You must check out this ingenious green heron using bread as bait to catch fish.

Watching the video, I was pretty sure the fish were just going to steal his bait, but hang on.

Green heron breed in my side yard, so a little oddly, I admit, this makes me feel parentally proud.

  1. This. Is. Unreal. I will never eat chicken again. (Not really, I am to weak to give up chicken. But this is far more impressive that chimpanzees using sticks to catch termites.)
