are the long-legged freshwater and coastal birds in the family Ardeidae, with 64 recognised species, some of which are referred to as "egrets" or "bitterns" rather than herons

Similarly, the relationships of the genera in the family are not completely resolved.
resemble birds in some other families, such as the storks, ibises, spoonbills, and cranes, they differ from these in flying with their necks retracted, not outstretched. They are also one of the bird groups that have powder down. Some members of this group nest colonially in trees, while others, notably the bitterns, use reed beds. Collective Noun
There are many collective nouns for herons
including a colony, flight, hedge, heronry, pose, rookery, scattering, and sedge.
Tricolored Herons are referred to as a flag.
Herons are found everywhere and coincidentally I lead photography workshops and tours almost everywhere. Check out Wildlife Workshops
