Wood storks!

RBT_3088-Edit-2

The wood stork is a large bird, white with a bald-head. It’s a wading bird of the southeastern swamps. The Wood Stork is the only stork breeding in the United States. Its late winter breeding season is timed to the Florida dry season when its fish prey become concentrated in shrinking pools. I found these wood storks at the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge in Central Florida.
