Wood Storks like to feed in small flocks, all walking in a row.

Here there were two up front, but others behind in the same line.

When they hit the end of a marsh or canal, they all do a U-turn. The birds that were last, they are now first. Happens all the time.

That means a photographer can stand in the same place and chances are they parade back and forth in front of you a few times.

    1. This is from observation, and then a little research. Other birds will do that also but not as clearly defined. Roseate Spoonbill feed like that (I will be posting photos later today, or in the morning of them with the Storks). The American Coot do this, on a huge scale. It’s a called a ‘raft of Coots’. They swim along the edge of a marsh maybe 3 across, but have over 100 birds on a line. And they travel and move like a big dance line in a Broadway Show LOL.

      It’s never boring out there 😀😀

    1. They are the ‘old men’ of the marshes. As tall as a person, wing span maybe 8 feet wide. They also like to feed with Spoonbills 😀. I still have many images from the other day, we found several flocks. Thanks.
