Description
These birds live on waterfronts all throughout Hyrule. Their characteristically thin legs and long necks help them catch water-dwelling fish or frogs for food. They lie perfectly still in wait for their prey and then stretch out their long necks to capture their meal.

The Blue-Winged Heron is a large bird with long, graceful legs, and an elongated neck, colored predominantly white with dark blue wings and crest, while their legs and beak are black. They often appear in flocks of two or more, strutting slowly about. If Link approaches them, they will fly away. Though the Hyrule Compendium states that they appear on waterfronts, they can also be seen in flat, grassy areas with no bodies of water nearby.[2]

Blue-Winged Herons are known to stand perfectly still to catch their prey, which can be Fish or Frogs.[3] If killed, they will sometimes drop Raw Bird Drumsticks.
