The Green Heron is one of the world’s few tool-using bird species. It creates fishing lures with bread crusts, insects, earthworms, twigs, feathers, and other objects, dropping them on the surface of the water to entice small fish.
What we like about the Green Heron is that even though it has a generally sleek appearance, the feathers on its head will sometimes stick up, giving it a "bed head" look, almost like Kramer off of Seinfeld. Seriously.
