Item #: crab-heron
On a beautiful island in the Pacific Northwest they have over 600 nesting Great Blue Herons that call Davis Slough Heronry home. It is a fascinating sight to see them wading on the shoreline, roosted in the trees, swooping in for a landing, or standing motionless in the shallow marsh. Our artist has been blessed to witness the sound of feathers brushing against each other as a solitary heron wings by just overhead.
The Great Blue on this 19" square pillow was designed on a photo of a heron doing what it does best -- leaving. But not without emitting a very inelegant noise that can best be described as a loud "GRONK!".
Herons stand over four feet tall and have a six-foot wingspan, so they need to catch a lot of fish, shrimp, crabs, mice, frogs, bugs, snakes and so forth to sustain their eight pound weight. Great Blue Herons are found almost everywhere in North America and Central America.
