Artist's Description

A Great Blue Heron fluffs out its feathers as it searches the shallow salt waters for food sources.
The Great Blue Heron’s range is throughout most of North America, including Alaska, British Columbia, Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. Their range extends south through Florida, Mexico and the Caribbean to South America. Birds east of the Rocky Mountains in the northern part of their range are migratory and winter in Central America or northern South America. From the southern United States southwards, and on the Pacific coast, they are year-round residents. However their hardiness is such that individuals often remain through cold northern winters, as well.

Great Blue Herons are the largest North American heron, with a head-to-tail length of 91–140 cm (36-55 in), a wingspan of 167-201 cm (66-79 in), and a weight of 2–3.6 kg (4.4-8 lbs).
