Description

An immature green heron on the hunt in the shallows. They are one of the few birds that use tools to catch fish. They drop small items such as stones to attract fish and then strike lightning fast. A section of Raccoon Creek lake functions as a green heron rookery and you can reach it by kayak. The young birds are quite curious and with patience they can be quite photogenic. This photo was taken from my kayak within 15 feet of this bird.
