These were taken at a Wood Stork rookery in Georgia, USA. One we had never been to, or even knew existed. Stork rookeries are usually well hidden and protected. This one included.

Nesting was on a series of secluded islands. However, at the end of the trail we walked many Storks flew by on their way to other ponds and lakes. Standing there we had a few chances at decent flight shots.

Later looking at a map there appears to be a string of small islands in the middle of this lake perfect for a rookery. Further research finds they were created by the US Park Service, populated with good nesting trees, and is now a maintained and protected rookery.

A nice surprise find.
