It’s not every day that I get inspired or be awe struck by something so different and I have no other way to put it. So here’s a post dedicated to them.
See the two fellas on the left? They look like they’re hiding, but appearances can be deceiving and this is a good example of that.
“How do you hunt during the day when your prey hides in the darkness?
You make your own, like the black egret!”
These birds use “canopy feeding,” where they form their wings into a makeshift umbrella that blocks out the sunlight and creates a small area of darkness underneath for fish to hide in. But when fish get close enough to the surface, the egret makes its move and has a nice meal.

Pretty neat, huh? But as always the internet finds a way to make a joke out of anything and the Black Eglet is no exception. So here’s one I found quite funny
Up next, the Potoo
The Potoo are indigenous to South American forests are just about the coolest birds I’ve seen.
What’s so cool about them? just look at THEM!!
Or Just do a google image search, sit back and enjoy.
