Wood Storks Passing Close

I have seen this small flock before and published the young bird seen here. This time they were closer than usual and their faces were not hidden.

A friend made a comment just this morning on how some of these birds will do their best to ignore you, if the food is there.

This theory will be put to the test soon as the weather starts to cool. It will be harder for them to sift through the thicker mud.

    1. Depending on the bird. Small birds are captured and banded to attempt to monitor the species travels and survival rates. Here, the big birds were banded to do the same. Just not a s easy as a little sparrow. šŸ˜€. Many of these larger birds are either threatened or endangered species. Wood Storks have few wildlife areas big enough to sustain them. Plus they migrate to South America.
