Fun With Wood Storks

Some say wood storks have a face only a mother could love. In some respects I suppose that could be true, they are not the most attractive looking birds out there. But over the years I have grown rather fond of these large ungainly birds and have begun to appreciate their unusual appearance.

Here are a few different shots from the past week or so. The first two pictures are of a juvenile wood stork while the last two are an adult.

The last photo is a nice close up view of that unique face.

  3. The remind me both of fulture and condors a bit. I love the wood stork. I like that second picture, with the little fuzzy tufts on his head!
