All About Birds: Heron (22 Pics)

#4 While hunting, the heron straightens its neck. It strikes prey with a sharp beak, which acts like a spear.

#5 Another feature: her neck movements to the left and to the right are very limited – her bird can only turn freely up or down.

#6 The first three toes of the heron are connected by small membranes.

All fingers are rather long, have straight, pointed claws.

On the claw of the middle finger, there are interesting notches - they are necessary for "self-care". The heron is very fond of looking after its feathers - she does it every day, carefully and for a long time.
