Evidently the fishing method is common among the species. Cornell Lab calls Green Heron one of the few tool-using birds.

Fascinating discovery. Thanks for posting it.

Very interesting.  I've seen videos of apes (?) using grass stalks to get ants, but never birds to get fish.

And to think he did it without a graphite rod, carbon fiber reel, and monofilament line.   :D

I like the way the bird keeps retrieving the bait to make sure it doesn't all get eaten away. It would be impressive enough if it put some bait out and waited but the bait was eaten away before a catch could be made. But s/he really understands what's happening and is almost literally "reeling one in."

Thanks for sharing.

If you are going to move to the Louisiana swamp you need to know that sac-au-lait  is the proper name for that fish

You're a brave man to admit that.
