MEANING: Sight, Devour, Digestion
Bird People should remember that all birds are messengers from Great Spirit.
I think this is one of the strangest birds to watch. They are waders and that is exactly what they do; therefore, you will always find them near water or on the edge of water. They just stand there with their legs perfectly straight. It kind of reminds me of how my yoga instructor always tried to be to straighten my legs during Mountain Posture.
Great Blue Heron locates it food by sight and swallows it whole. At the same time, Great Blue Heron Medicine can choke on its prey if it is too large. In other words, sometimes the eyes are bigger than the stomach. They feed their young by regurgitation because the parent Heron can consume up to four times as much food when they are feeding their chicks.
This message is not necessary about food and how one eats, although it is about digesting what you are fed (information). The message this Bird Medicine brings to me personally is quite profound. I can see how Great Blue Heron Medicine serves me through this website and how I have chosen to feed the masses. I get it!
