As regular CFZ-watchers will know, for some time Corinna has been doing a column for Animals & Men and a regular segment on On The Track... particularly about out-of-place birds and rare vagrants. There seem to be more and more bird stories from all over the world hitting the news these days so, to make room for them all - and to give them all equal and worthy coverage - she has set up this new blog to cover all things feathery and Fortean.

Bird uses piece of bread as bait to catch fish (video)

The other day I posted a video of an invasive catfish on the Tarn River that hunts pigeons.
While we all know that birds hunt fish, not as many people may know that some birds use bait to hunt fish. Apologies in advance to the bird experts who have seen this before, and the vegetarians who got upset when I posted the video of the serial killer catfish. But it’s an astonishing video.

I think this may be a green heron, but if anyone knows for sure, drop it in the comments.
