Heading Back

There must have been 120 wood storks out in the salt marsh today.

After a busy day of fishing small groups, as well as single individuals, started to head back to the trees for their afternoon roost.

They have kind of a rough looking face, but they’re quite interesting birds.

  1. The top picture reminds me of the lines of concord. But I suppose aeroplanes have always emulated birds. Just not as elegantly. Sorry I’ve been absent.WP did the usual trick of dropping you from my follows, and I suddenly thought, Where’s Phil?!

    • I totally understand with the WP dropping off people situation. Several times I just would not see posts from those I followed and I just figured they don’t post anymore.
      Thanks for checking out these lovelies! 😀

    • It’s funny with the wood storks, sometimes one will take off and the rest will follow that same line so I can hopefully track a few. Doesn’t always happen but sometimes… 🙂

  2. They look so good with the tree background. I have a soft spot for these guys, and really enjoy their ancient looks.
