Question of the Week – Green Heron

Posted by romeethredge on May 16, 2014

Last week I asked about a bird on Lake Seminole and it was a Green Heron.

Learn more about it at the Cornell Bird site http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/green_heron/lifehistory

“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.”

Here’s this week’s question. I saw this bird while traveling down Peanut Bland road in southern Seminole county this week. What is it?
