Immediately the wings of a Wood Stork catch your attention. Primary feathers are long and black with a green tint. A striking thick white cape covers their shoulders. The wing span can be 5.5 feet (1.6 m) in length.

In the wild a low flying Wood Stork can be heard long before you see them. The air turbulence makes a distinct and loud sound.

This is a Wood Stork, native to the Americas. It is the only Stork in North America and has been fighting for it’s survival in a shrinking environment for years.

Against all odds, it’s winning. With environmental laws shrinking, climate changes increasing, and competition from other species this may not last.

A collection of images is being compiled here to present this calm and ancient bird to people who may never have the privilege to see them or even hear their powerful wings as they fly by.

This is a true survivor.

Closed, Main Street

Time has not been good to many small towns. I have walked, and shot, this street several times in the past year. Nothing has changed, one way or the other.

Anything I can think to say here will sound political to someone. So I will not make any comments other than to ask, is there anything that could breath life back into small town Main Street?
