In 2012 I saw a young Green Heron (don't think it had taken its first flight
yet) playing around with a leaf. At the time I was wondering if it knew what
was food and what was not. But now thinking about it maybe it was using the
leaf as bait and experimenting. Maybe it saw a parent doing this or maybe it
was innate?



Anyway, I got of video of the young bird here

I have seen Green Herons do this on several occasions when I lived in South
Florida.
