The largest and most widespread heron in North America, the Great Blue Heron can be found along the ocean shore or the edge of a small inland pond. An all white form is found from southern Florida into the Caribbean, and used to be considered a separate species, the "Great White Heron." (5 years and 2988 days ago)

wow!! this is great!! BTW what is Tortillon author?? never heard of it!!

author says:

They are called Blending tortillons, made from rolled paper and you can get them in any art supply store, they come in three sizes, large, medium and small. The have tapered tips and are great help in blending. I tend to just buy them instead of making my own, I always row them to loose.

cool!, i notice in your SBS you mention that you used a pic, it would be great if you could also post the pic here

author says:

Sorry, I meant study your drawing to make sure you are keeping it in proportion, didn't use any pictures. My first attempt was a squat heron and looked really funny and no, not showing, I threw it away, lol

Here is just one of the birds that tend to hang around our house http://www.pxleyes.com/picture/635/4a37ebf7e64d2.html
