The Great Blue Heron has a wing span of 5-6 feet and a height of 3-4 feet.  It only weighs about 4 pounds because it has hollow bones. It visits us in our backyard in southwest Florida where fish are found for this wading bird.

On the east coast of Florida they have the Great Blue Pickled Heron which likes to hunt for the elusive Eastern Gefilte Fish near Boca Raton.
