Wood Storks In A New Location

It wasn’t that long ago the Wood Stork was on the endangered list. Their numbers were dropping and could find less and less suitable habitats.

There are still plenty of problems but the Wood Stork is a success story. They are off the endangered list and extending their breeding grounds.

Recently changes were made to old rice fields in Charleston’s Magnolia Plantation creating a better flow of water levels. Within a few months adult Wood Storks started to show up in the marshes.

The fact they are adults is important. Breeding season starts soon and rather than being south of us already they are still here. It might be another group will create a local rookery nearby.
