Coming And Going
We still have a good size number of wood storks feeding and roosting in and around the salt marsh area. Here is a portion of one group converging on a seafood feast along with a few egrets at low tide.
Inevitably, one wood stork will jump off and fly to a new section, frequently one at a time and the rest will soon follow.
I watched a few individuals leave the crowd and fly away to their new fishing hole always in hopes of hitting the jackpot.
Some say the wood storks have a face only a mother could love but they are interesting birds and among the fastest of all the wading birds in snapping their beaks shut on a fish.
