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. (Source: allaboutbirds.org)
Happy Monday! Whoo Hoo! Does anyone know what this bird is? I found this one (above) at Galveston State Park in Galveston, Texas.
Update: The pink bird is a Roseate Spoonbill
I am new to birding and really a lack of “models” (for practicing photography) is what got me started into birding. That said, I am really not sure what any of these birds are so if you know, I’d appreciate it if you’d let me know 🙂
Have a happy and beautiful today!
Thanks for stopping by!
