Check out how this clever bird catches fish.

This bird – which appears to be a green heron – sets fish bait in the water, posts up on the side of the shore, and waits for the opportune moment to strike. It’s one clever bird – when it sees that the fish might swim away with the bait, it quickly snatches the bait back. Take a look.

There are several species of birds in the animal kingdom that  are skilled fishers. In some areas of the world, fishermen have learned how to train birds to help them catch fish. For more than a millennia, Chinese fishermen have used cormorants to catch fish.
