An active hunter, this heron can be animated with wings open when stalking prey. The white chest and grey feathers make it distinctive from other herons its size. It is not unusual to observe this heron with other wading birds on the pursuit of prey. It has learned to coordinate its hunting practice with other birds, letting other species stir up fish that it will ambush. The life size etching is created with four plates, 8 inks, and hand-painted with watercolors.
