Woody’s Evening In The Marsh

This wood stork flew into the salt marsh yesterday evening just prior to sunset and stayed around long enough to grab a quick bite to eat. Soon he was off again and likely headed out to follow the tide and the fish that would be coming in with it.

    • Well they have a kind of prehistoric look to them and a face only a mother could love, but that’s also why I tend to find them rather endearing. I’m glad you enjoyed seeing this unusual bird!

  1. I am reminded of video I saw years ago of gooney birds, with their 3 foot wing span, coming in for a landing. How amazing the wood stork doesn’t crash land on his enormous beak every time!

  2. I love him. Woody would be welcome at our house any time! Great coloring on him, and love the reflection shot, and his souful eye(s) in the last shot.

    • Every once in a while we will have a wood stork visit the pond behind us but so far none have tried to come into the house. A young brown pelican though is another story… 🙂
