This is a subtropical and tropical species which breeds in much of South America, Central America and the Caribbean. The wood stork is the only stork that breeds in North America. In the United States there are small breeding populations in Florida, Georgia, and the Carolinas. (Wikipedia)

There is a fairly big rookery not far from here, however it’s inaccessible being on private land. The owners keep it closed and for Storks that’s great. They like to have plenty of private space for nesting.

Places like the ACE Basin and Harris Neck (Georgia) have helped these birds population so much they are no longer considered endangered.
