The yellow crown!
What an interesting day I had yesterday! The day was grey and cool with a breeze. A bird flew into my window. When a bird hits a window it can mean mixed messages. The crows, and the woodpecker and this awesome Yellow Crowned Night Heron came to visit me. I even saved a tiny tiny red spider. It felt like it had a mysterious energy!
The Yellow Crowned Night Heron is definitely interesting since Urban Muses' new logo is a yellow crown on a lotus!
I found some cool things on the Heron!

Most Native American tribes took note of the heron’s inquisitiveness, curiosity and determination. As such this set the heron as a symbol of wisdom in that this creature seemed to have good judgement skills.
Specifically, the Iroquois tribe held the blue heron as a very good omen, a very lucky sign. They recongnized the heron as an expert fisher/hunter. As such, they believed that sighting a heron before a hunt was a sign that the hunt would be a good one.
As a water creature the heron is also a symbol of going with the flow, and working with the elements of Mother nature rather than struggling against her.
The heron is a beautiful creature, exhibiting grace, and noble stature. It’s no wonder the Native Indians and ancients honored the heron throughout the centuries.
