Gray Heron - we pass one of these on our way to work most mornings. My honey honey always stops because he knows how much I love to watch the heron.
Great Blue Heron According to North American Native tradition, the Blue Heron brings messages of self-determination and self-reliance. They represent an ability to progress and evolve. The long thin legs of the heron reflect that an individual doesn't need great massive pillars to remain stable, but must be able to stand on one's own.
