Blue-Winged Herons are a variety of Heron with long legs and an elongated neck, colored predominantly white with dark blue wings and crest.[3] Their legs and beak are are a darker 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.[4]

Blue-Winged Herons are known to stand perfectly still to catch their prey, which are mainly Fish and Frogs.[4] When they are killed, they will drop Raw Bird Drumsticks.
