Green heron, according to Cornell Lab, is one of the few tool-using birds. They've been observed dropping bait (insect, earthworm, twigs, etc.) on the surface of the water then grabbing small fish that are attracted. That is pretty cool. This is a painting of an adult eyeing a fish, perhaps after dropping its lure. "A balancing act", watercolor 16"x12" (Original SOLD at Lodi's Sandhill Crane Festival).
