Any wading bird of the genus Ardea and allied genera, of
the family Ardeid[ae]. The herons have a long, sharp bill,
and long legs and toes, with the claw of the middle toe
toothed. The common European heron (Ardea cinerea) is
remarkable for its directly ascending flight, and was
formerly hunted with the larger falcons.
Note: There are several common American species; as, the
great blue heron (Ardea herodias); the little blue
(Ardea c[oe]rulea); the green (Ardea virescens);
the snowy (Ardea candidissima); the night heron or
qua-bird (Nycticorax nycticorax). The plumed herons
are called egrets.
Heron's bill (Bot.), a plant of the genus Erodium; -- so
called from the fancied resemblance of the fruit to the
head and beak of the heron.
