The heron exist on all continents except Antarctica and  are present in most marine habitats except the coldest extremes of the Arctic. There are 64 types of herons. Although they are "waterbirds" that feed on the margins of lakes, rivers, swamps, ponds and seas, some do live in extremely high mountains and driest deserts. Interestingly, they are mostly a non swimming bird.
