Statuesque and graceful in movement, the Great Blue Heron is one of North America’s most familiar and adaptable wading birds. At four feet tall, with a six-foot wingspan, it is also the continent’s largest heron species. While vocal in flight, Great Blue Herons are frequently observed standing silent and motionless along shorelines. The bird takes to the sky with slow, deep wing-beats, its long neck curved into an S-shape, and its head hunched back upon its shoulders.

Great Blue Herons can curl their neck into an S shape for a more aerodynamic flight profile and to quickly strike prey at a distance.
Great Blue Herons have specialized feathers on their chest that continually grow and fray. The herons comb this “powder down” with a fringed claw on their middle toes, using the down like a washcloth to remove fish slime and other oils from their feathers as they preen. Applying the powder to their underparts protects their feathers against the slime and oils of swamps.
Great Blue Herons can hunt day and night.
Great Blue Herons weigh only 5 to 6 pounds thanks to their hollow bones—a feature all birds share.
The oldest Great Blue Heron, based on banding recovery, was 24 years old.
