What’s in a name - The origin of Heron
Herons are a highly mobile family of freshwater and coastal birds. They can be found all over the planet and nearly all species are related to water. The heron is also the official coat of arms of the municipality of Tysvær on the Norwegian west coast, sporting a silver heron on an ocean blue background. Tysvær is the home county of Heron Advisory's founder as well as several large colonies of herons.
