Your Art Class Sees an Egret, a Crane, and a Heron


Egrets, cranes, and herons are all elegant, graceful, stately birds with long necks and legs. Often hunting for small marine life in murky ditches and marshes using their beak as a spear. The stark white feathers offer an incredible contrast to their surroundings. How can you determine the difference between egrets, cranes, or herons? Egrets are usually white with black legs and they keep their heads into their bodies when flying. Herons also keep their heads in while flying but their legs are usually pale. Cranes stick their heads out when flying and their necks are shorter. So whichever bird you want to represent keep it graceful.
