Besides being able to catch the big bird in a near fly by I caught some ‘elusive’ green color here. The wing feathers of a Wood Stork are black, but not 100%. In the proper light there can be a green tint also. I don’t think it’s caused by reflections since I have seen it on cloudy days also.
That green requires a perfect angle of light. One that almost never happens.
I was able to catch these storks (there are different birds here) by hanging back and waiting on a dike between 2 open marsh fields. One by one a bird would lift and fly over the trail moving to the other side. It took about 1/2 hour but ultimately all the birds came by.
