Herons, Bitterns & Egrets of the World Poster print

Herons are long-legged, long-necked, tall birds with broad wings that are part of the Ardeidae family. There are around 72 recognized species, including egrets and bitterns. Egrets are named differently from herons because they are mainly white or have decorative plumes during breeding season. Bitterns are solitary marsh birds that are related to herons, but have shorter necks and stouter bodies. Although primarily native to the tropics, herons are found in a wide variety of environments.
