    I have a concrete duck that has been in the family for over 70 years. In a move part of his foot got broken. Hubby told me to add glue to the concrete. So I mixed up about a cup of concrete and added about 1/4 C Elmer's glue. Placed the duck on plastic wrap and started adding the concrete mixture over lapping the foot. As it dried I formed it to look like the other foot. Once dry (I waited 2 full days) I painted the duck and sealed with a sealer. Used RustOlyum 2x paint and sealer. He is on his 5th year in my yard and still standing on two feet. Good luck with you Heron.

    In the 80's I repaired a frog with craft stucco. He is still holding together.
