"Both parents help with incubating the eggs (incubation takes about 4 weeks) and with taking care of the nestlings. Young herons will fledge at around two months."
Standing between three to four feet tall, these beautiful birds only weigh on average four to six pounds! They can fly as fast as 30 mph with their six feet wingspans.
A heron's eyesight is about three times more powerful than human sight. They have binocular vision, giving them very good depth perception, along with a built in zoom lens. They can swiftly switch between telescopic and macro vision, not unlike the way an excellent camera operates.
