Switzerland. Canton Vaud. Founex. Traffic roundabout. Wooden sculpture of a heron holding a fish in its beak. Herons are long-legged, long-necked, freshwater and coastal birds in the family Ardeidae, with 72 recognised species, some of which are referred to as egrets or bitterns rather than herons. Herons, by evolutionary adaptation, have long beaks. 1.04.2024 © 2024 Didier Ruef
