Sure enough, the crow - or a friend - returned an hour and a half later with another piece of bread and began to break it up like before. But this time he was successful - and snatched up a fish who was attracted by his bait.
Hasson was stunned by the fishing crow, and returned to the park to videotape it, witnessing the behavior about 10 more times. In a video, which was taken in 2000, a clever bird can be seen dropping several pieces of bread into the pond. When one large piece begins to float away, he pulls it back toward him - and is rewarded with a nice big fish.
