Little Green Heron

The Green Heron (Butorides virescens) is a small heron of North and Central America.

Green herons are one of the few species of animal known to use tools. In particular, they commonly use bread crusts, insects, or other items as bait. The bait is dropped onto the surface of a body of water in order to lure fish.

When a fish takes the bait, the green heron will then grab and eat the fish.
