In the Eye of the Beholder

January 09, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

The wood stork is one of those birds that has beautiful plumage and a less than attractive head. While there are a number of storks species in the world, this is the only one in North America and was upgraded this past June to "threatened" from "endangered" as a species . It is a tropical/subtropical bird so it is seen in only a few places in the continental United States. I photographed this bird in Ding Darling on Sanibel Island, Florida last winter. They often ride the thermals and can be seen gliding with seemingly little effort in the sky.
