Balancing Act.jpg

A pair of Wood Storks perform a balancing act on small branches as the click their bills, bob and weave in a mating ritual.
They nest in early spring, just in time for the traditional season of lowest water when prey items will be concentrated in shrunken wetlands, providing good hunting so the storks can feed their young.

Large, white Wood Storks wade through southeastern swamps and wetlands. It is a good flier, soaring on thermals with neck and legs outstretched. This bald-headed wading bird stands just over 3 feet tall, towering above almost all other wetland birds. It slowly walks through wetlands with its long, hefty bill down in the water feeling for fish and crustaceans. This ungainly looking stork roosts and nests in colonies in trees above standing water.
