The odd looking shoe-billed heron (or stork, a misnomer) is found along the White Nile and the boat-billed heron in tropical America. More

the Louisiana Heron is the most delicate in constitution of all. Whilst at St. Augustine in Florida, in the month of January, I found this species extremely abundant there; but after a hard frost of a few days, they all disappeared, leaving the other Herons, none of which seemed to be affected by the cold, and returned again as soon as the Fahrenheit thermometer rose to 80 degrees.

lacking the showy plumes of other Herons, the Louisiana Heron had no commercial potential for man, and has therefore flourished. Largely a communal bird, the Louisiana Heron nests in colonies along the shoreline at ground level or in overhanging trees, where it carefully guards its three or four pale green-blue eggs. Hatching within three weeks, the slate-colored young Herons soon take to the skies in the familiar leg-dangling flight characteristic of the Heron family. More
