The herons of the world are a large and interesting family, having ancient origins stretching back to the Lower Eocene some 55 million years ago.

Great blue herons always live near sources of water, including rivers, lake edges, marshes, saltwater seacoasts, and swamps. They usually nest in trees or bushes that stand near water, breeding at elevations of up to 1,500 m. They tend to avoid marine habitats along the east coast and instead live inland.
