Wood Stork wades through the wetlands

Jumping back to about a month ago on my trip to Florida. I had hoped to see more of these cool looking birds but only came across this one. It didn’t seem to be busy making baby deliveries (haha!) and instead was looking for a meal.

It was much larger than most of the other wetland and swamp birds we were seeing on our photo excursion this day and quite easy to pick out against the green foliage.

The Wood Stork is the only stork native to North America. It is threatened in some of its native areas, primarily southern Florida, and has expanded its breeding range as far north as South Carolina.
