My friend and birding enthusiast Deborah G borrowed my Sony Alpha 350 to shoot this little Green Heron. The book says: "The Green Heron is one of the few tool-using birds. It commonly drops bait onto the surface of the water and grabs the small fish that are attracted. It breeds across most of the U.S.; spends winters in the southern U.S. south to Venezuela, Panama, and the West Indies. Preferred habitats include shoreline habitats along rivers, oceans, lakes, and ponds. Legs and feet change from yellow to orange in mating season.
