The Difference Between
Herons and Egrets

What is the difference between a heron and an egret?

Herons and Egrets are in the same family and look similar, so what is the difference? The name Egret comes from the French 'aigrette' meaning the plume feathers of the six species of white Egrets. These are a special breeding plumage only occurring through part of the year. For many years they were popular in the fashion trade. Egrets were the Herons from which 'aigrettes' were obtained so causing the death of many birds. The term has since lost its original meaning and is now used to describe various members of the Heron family which do not have these plumes and which are not white.

What are the heron's adaptations?

Herons have adapted in many ways. They stand still, patiently for a long time in shallow water waiting for their prey, then stab it with their extremely sharp beak. They avoid predators by building large nests of sticks in trees so they cannot be reached easily by most predators. They have plumage to blend in with their surroundings. If they stand motionless and quiet at the edge of a shore, they are very hard to see, which is how they fool their enemies. They have long legs for wading and keen eyesight.

Do heron decoys work to keep herons away?

No it would not, if anything it would attract more herons by showing other herons that there is a good food source. If you are trying to stop herons from hanging about near a pond then buy a different decoy being a bird of prey (only £2-£3 from a good garden center). You could use a Buzzard, Sparrow hawk or a kestrel. You could also use a magpie or jay which is general pest to the heron because they steal their eggs.

Blue herons eat anything from fish, insects, frogs, toads to moles and small mammals! They will clear out your garden pond within seconds so secure your pond before the heron gets to them?

Indeed they will. Expensive Koi? You've extended an open invitation for raccoons and Great Blue Herons. Depending on where you live, they may not migrate. It's a ginormous fine to kill them. A friend of mine has an organic vineyard and watched Great Blue Herons hunting down mice.
