“It feeds upon insects, and is remarkable for its method of procuring them. When it observes a fly, or any other insect on a weed, or hovering over the water, it ejects a little drop through its tubular snout with such presicion as frequently disable the little animal, so that it falls into the water and is devoured.” — Goodrich, 1859
