Wood Storks In Love
Last night in the salt marsh a large crowd of wood storks came in at one point to feed during low tide. The storks were behaving in their usual manner…sticking their bills in the water trying to grab fish, and fussing and squabbling with one another at the same time. This pair however were not involved in any of that, they only had eyes for each other. They spent their time grooming and nuzzling and seemed to be seriously in love. 🙂
Some of you may remember the photos from earlier this month of the pair of amorous wood storks canoodling in a pine tree. Could this be the same pair?! It’s possible, I have no way of knowing for sure, but I can say this is definitely not the usual wood stork behavior we normally see, so these two really stood out.
