Evolution Or Just Smart?

Evolution is the change in the inherited characteristics of biological populations over successive generations. Its a 'hot potato discussion' in some countries, on the school syllabus in others and dismissed out of hand in even more.

So explain this:

Give a bird some bread and he'll eat for a day, teach a bird to fish and he'll end up on YouTube. 

This Green Heron shows some real learning behavior. It actually lures fish with bread. The method works. The most interesting part for me is, it seems to be hungry but does not eat the bread, unlike the surrounding Ibises do.
