The following description appears on the inside cover of your mini-journal.


This majestic bird is at home in small streams, marshes, or at the shores of ponds, lakes, or ocean bays. Great Blue Herons are large birds (4′ tall, 6′ wingspan) that nest across North America from Alaska to Mexico.

The heron is a truly picturesque bird; plumage and greatly lengthened feathers form a beautiful crest and elegant chest and back plumes. The Great Blue Heron’s distinctive flight is slow and ponderous. The neck is drawn back so that the head is hunched down on the shoulders; the legs trail behind serving as a rudder.

These herons are solitary hunters. Food items captured by lightning-quick jabs of the pointed bill include fish, water snakes, eels, amphibians and insects.

The heron can teach us to be self-reliant and to follow our own path, however non-traditional that may be. Herons teach us to trust our innate wisdom.
