Wood Stork, No Longer An Endangered Species

Almost 5 foot tall and a wing span of 6 feet. It’s the original ‘Big Bird’.

This is the only stork that breeds in North America. A small population can be found in Florida, Georgia, and South Carolina.

The number of breeding pairs has grown and it is now been taken off the endangered species list. They are still considered to be threatened. A distinction lost on the storks I’m sure.

    1. Thanks. I counted about 30 in the trees that day. In flight they fool you. They look slow being so big, but a 6 foot wing span moves them very fast. Suddenly they are so close as to fill the entire view finder. And of course the photo has now cut off their head, feet….
