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.
What an amazing sight, Phil. Great photos. We only have one here. 😢
They are certainly not the most beautiful of birds but nonetheless interesting, for all that. It seems that as soon as one flies off, the others think there must be something better there, so they follow. The sheep are like that, in the fields by us.
Wonderful captures, Phil. I love Woodstorks, and we are lucky to have increasing numbers of them nesting here the past few years.
