the shore surveying the prospects.� A female hummer saw this strange looking
creature which it was surmised she had never encountered in her life and
flew up to it and hovered in front of its bill, trying to figure out what it
was.� After about three rounds of this behavior, the heron darted its neck
out, rapidly opened then snapped its bill closed�and was last seen flying
off with the hummer in its mouth.
