heron (hèr´en) noun
Any of various wading birds of the family Ardeidae, having a long neck, long legs, a long pointed bill, and usually white, gray, or bluish-gray plumage.
[Middle English, from Old French, of Germanic origin.]

  Note: There are several common American species; as, the great blue heron (Ardea
  herodias); the little blue (A. c[oe]rulea); the green (A. virescens); the snowy (A.
  candidissima); the night heron or qua-bird (Nycticorax nycticorax). The plumed herons
  are called egrets.

  Heron's bill (Bot.), a plant of the genus Erodium; -- so called from the fancied
  resemblance of the fruit to the head and beak of the heron.


heron (hèr´en), BIRD of the family Ardeidae, large wading birds, including the BITTERN and EGRET, found in many temperate regions but most numerous in tropical and subtropical areas. Herons have sharp, serrated bills, broad wings, and long legs. Their plumage is soft and drooping, and (especially at breeding time) they may have long, showy plumes on their heads, breasts, and backs.


Hero (hê´ro, hîr´o) or Heron (hê´ròn´)
First century A.D.
internal linkAlexandrian scientist who invented many internal linkwater-driven and steam-driven machines and devised a formula for determining the area of a triangle.

Hero of Alexandria

Hero of Alexandria or Heron (hêr´òn), fl. A.D. 62, mathematician and inventor. His origin is internal linkuncertain, although he wrote in Greek on the measurement of geometric figures and invented many contrivances operated by water, steam, or compressed air, including a fountain and a fire engine.

Heron, the great inventor of Alexandria, described in detail what is thought to be the first working steam engine. He called it an aeolipile, or "wind ball". His design was a sealed caldron of water was placed over a heat source. As the water boiled, steam rose into the pipes and into the hollow sphere. The steam escaped from two bent outlet tubes on the ball, resulting in rotation of the ball. The principle he used in his design is similar to that of today's jet propulsion. Heron did not consider this invention being useful for everyday applications: he considered his aeolipile invention as a novelty, a remarkable toy.

Known as Mchanikos, the Machine Man, Heron invented the world's first steam engine, developed some sophisticated surveying tools, and crafted handy gizmos like a self-trimming oil lamp.  Technically speaking, Heron's clever inventions were particularly notable for their incorporation of the sorts of self-regulating internal linkfeedback control systems that form the bedrock of internal linkcybernetics; like today's toilets, his "inexhaustible goblet" regulated its own level with a floating mechanism.  But what really stirred Heron's soul were novelties: pneumatic gadgets, automata, and internal linkmagic theaters, one of which rolled itself before the audience on its own power, cranked through a miniature three-dimensional performance, and then made its own exit.  Another staged a internal linkDionysian mystery rite with Apollonian precision:  Flames lept, thunder crashed, and miniature female Bacchantes whirled madly around the wine god on a pulley-driven turntable.
