All About Birds: Heron (22 Pics)

#7 This amazing bird “powders” its plumage: sprinkles it with crumbs from its smallest and most fragile feathers (“powders”), which are located on its chest and back.

#8 This bird has a small, poorly visible crest on its head.

Feathers are more often monochromatic, black and white specimens are much less common.

#9 Large wings allow the herons to make a large span in flight – it turns out to be smooth, slow and “heavy”.

They fly quite rarely, being on the ground most of the time.
