Khenko, The Great Blue Heron


Khenko, the fisher, is the Coast Salish mythical name for the Great Blue Heron. Khenko was Installed during the summer of 2006 on  the north shore of False Creek directly across from Granville Island and just east of the Granville Steet Bridge off the tip of George Wainborn Park. Khenko's wings flap upp and down, powered by wind catching sails. There were even a couple of small fish in khenko's tummy...I guess they were slowly digested with the time.

This is another wonderfull piece of Art of Doug Taylor.

Barb, I like the photo very much, especially since the Great Blue is one of my favourite creatures and in PEI they are in all the rivers and bays. In fact it is often called the provincial bird of PEI because they are plentiful and beautiful, however the Bluejay is correct.
