  1. Its fun watching them hunt. I like to throw bread at the fish to make them come to the surface of the water. Then I watch the Heron swoop in and munch on them. Everybody has to eat. So I don’t mind that the Heron munches on a fish. I also observed that the Heron are territorial when it comes to fishing spots. If a younger Heron attempts to fish in an older Heron’s spot then a little quarrel between the birds will break out. Usually the older bird wins.
