Great Blue Heron Egg (replica)

Ardea herodias

The nests of the great blue heron are often built in tall trees. The eggs in the clutch size of 2-6 are incubated by both parents for about a month. Although these herons are more than 4 feet tall and have a wingspan of 6-7 feet, they weigh only about 5-6 pounds. They spear fish, small aquatic animals, and insects with their long, pointy bills.

Size: 2 1/2" High x 1 3/4" Wide

All Bone Clones products are life size replicas, unless otherwise noted. As with all Bone Clones® products, only the finest casting materials are used to cast our North American bird egg series. Expert artists paint each with meticulous care to match the eggs that were used in the casting process. Each egg is hand painted with permanent dyes and sealed with a resistant coating that makes it ideal for handling, study, teaching, as well as for display. In nature, eggs vary from region to region as well as from bird to bird. The colors and patterns used were determined by the egg used as well as reference material to find a happy medium that would be representative of the species.
