On a drive-by @ the lake in Shelby Park yesterday, I spotted a green heron 
hunting fish near a great blue heron.

I took a few photos from my vehicle, and decided to get out for a better angle. 
To my surprise the bird was so concentrated

on fishing I was able to get within 50', at the edge of the water. The location 
was very close to the bridge that goes out to the island

on the side closest to the golf course. For the hour or so I observed the two 
birds, the green caught 8 fish to the great blues ZERO.
