All About Birds: Heron (22 Pics)

#16 Basically, herons feed on frogs, tadpoles, fish, molluscs, crustaceans, insects.

But on occasion, they can eat small rodents or snakes.

#17 Birds hunt for their prey from an ambush.

They can stand on one leg for a long time, tracking down the victim in the reed thickets, or wander along the shore, shaking up the water.

#18 As soon as the future prey is close to the heron, it straightens its neck with one lightning movement, grabbing it with its beak.
