The Green Heron is likely the only wading bird that nests in nearly all of New York City's parks. They usually select nest sites immediately adjacent to or within close proximity to water bodies. This bird is known to use tools, creating fishing lures from twigs, insects, bread crusts, feathers, earthworms and other objects, placing them on the water's surface to attract fish.
