Artist's notes:

shorebird or wader fine art illustrations

Herons make great subjects to illustrate. Recently, I've been on a kick with this species, adding several to the image library. It's hard, no matter where you are in the US, to not occasionally see these wonderful birds. I've come across them nearly everywhere I've hiked. And driving "up north" in Minnesota they are constantly spotted along the roadside in and around the water of the many lakes and streams. As I've drawn more, my curiosity about the family Ardeidae has grown and I've done lots of research into the species not native to the US. I've discovered many wonderful birds I hadn't known about before - like the Boat-Billed Heron with it's beak shaped like a boat! I'll be adding more species and who know - maybe one day I'll have drawn all 64 extant herons!

Information about Herons:

All herons are in the family Ardeidae. The includes bitterns and egrets. There are 64 recognized species worldwide. They inhabit all continents except Antarctica. They're mostly commonly associated with wetlands and water, but they're highly adaptable and live in nearly any areas they can find food, even cities and urban areas.
