Heron is the name of a wading bird. It looks like a crane. Its body is mainly gray. It likes to stand still by the water for a long time, waiting for opportunities to prey on fish and shrimp. Therefore, it also has the nickname “old man with long neck”. If we want to say that the heron itself has any representative meaning, we can probably say that as long as we wait patiently, the opportunity will always come.
Heron’s head, neck, feet and mouth are very long, so its body appears thin and thin. Its upper body is mainly gray and its abdomen is white. The adult’s over eye and crown feathers are black, the flying feathers, wing horns and two chest spots are black, the head, neck, chest and back are white, the neck has black longitudinal lines, and the rest is gray. The head and neck of young birds are gray but not black. Iris yellow; beak yellow green; feet black. Call: deep throat quack and goose like call.
