The Heron Totem
The Heron Totem teaches us to be aggressive in pursuit of our needs and desires. They also instruct us in the ability to care for ourselves and be unwavering in this task. The Heron has a very long neck and long legs; they are of medium to large in size in the family of the Egrets. They have a decorative plume upon their heads which distinguish them from others in their species. They are solitary birds and live in marshes and shallow water. They mostly dine on frogs, fish and insects. They are very intelligent and thoughtful birds and are very self-determined.
Herons come in several categories, the Blue Heron, the White Heron and the Green Heron which is much smaller than its blue and white counterparts. Their wing span can be as wide as six feet. They have special feathers that they will crumble into a powder that will protect and waterproof their feathers. Heron’s, although solitary, will nest in colonies and nest in couples, maintaining and improving their nests together. Like many of the bird species both parents are responsible for caring for their offspring. Some adults will return to the same nest in the same colonies they were born in others create their own colonies or become members of existing colonies. They have a life span of about fifteen to twenty years.
