They certainly have the right camo for hiding in the bullrushes. And their large green talons certainly come in handy for climbing over the reeds. They stay still and move very slowly, just like herons, until the last moment when they strike out with their bills.

I thought he had heard a frog and that was what he was stalking, so I was surprised when he came up with such a small fish.

Like herons, their eyes are set on the underside of their face, which means they don't have to tilt their head that much when looking down.
