Green Heron

Another surprise Green Heron, first time to photograph this bird at Chassahowitzka WMA. This crow sized bird is a smart hunter. They have a unique baiting style behavior, they drop feathers, twigs or even insects on the water surface to lure fish within their striking distance.

Why they call this bird Green Heron…. their greenish-black cap, a greenish back.
