What is special about the way this bird finds its food?

Answer:

This is a Green Heron, and they are one of the few birds that use bait to attract fish. They will catch insects and drop them into the water as live bait, or drop its of leaf, feathers, etc. as fishing lures. I have watched one collect a piece of bread from a picnic area, and then tear off pieces to drop into the water to attract fish.
