G'day All,
Recently saw a message on Birdchat (US) asking for evidence of animal
intelligence for a BBC Wildlife documentary and recounted past details
of Striated Herons using bread as bait to catch fish, which I am sure
has been a topic on Birding-Aus.
Simon Bell from the BBC Natural History Unit has contacted me for
further details...does anybody have any anecdotes, photos or video of
this behaviour?
Any info would be gratefully received,
Tom Tarrant
Dayboro, Qld
