Wade into the world of herons, egrets, ibis and bitterns. These long-legged, colorful, graceful birds found in coastal and inland wetlands are especially adapted to hunt on the water's edge. You'll discover their fascinating natural history, including foraging strategies, elaborate courtship displays, and breeding rookeries, as well as what Mass Audubon's research at coastal breeding colonies can tell us. Learn wading bird identification tips and the best places to view them in Massachusetts and beyond.
