Green Heron Using “Bait”?

On my last few visits to various wetlands green herons have been seen. They are fun birds to watch, as they stalk slowly along a water’s edge to catch an insect or small fish. I was surprised to learn these birds sometimes use “bait”. I have never seen one yet drop a feather or small twig on the water’s surface to lure fish within its strike zone, but I will have to keep my eyes open in the future! Very interesting information!
