Wood Storks Feed and Flight
I spent some time yesterday evening with a group of Wood Storks in the salt marsh at low tide. Wood Storks can be very entertaining to watch! They generally arrive at a feeding area in small groups, and once there they begin to probe around in the shallow areas for fish and other marine species. They may feed as a big group or break into smaller groups or even hunt individually. But then when it becomes time to move on, they quite often do this one at a time. All it takes is one stork to decide it’s time to go, then one by one the rest of the group follows along to their new location!
