Is this known behavior?

Can anyone comment?
According to BNA...

"Black Phoebes also capture fish; for example, at goldfish pond in
Pasadena, CA, an individual repeatedly dove into pond, apparently trying to
capture young fish (Howell 1924); in Berkeley, CA, minnows taken
(Oberlander 1939); in Clark Co., NV, 1 individual observed hovering above
water of sewage pond, immersing its bill and capturing mosquito fish
(Gambusia affinis; Lawson 1975); and at a fish hatchery in Humboldt County,
CA, individuals fished regularly and used fingerlings to provision
nestlings (Irwin 1985)."
