The juvenile Wood Storks are getting bigger now, and there are lots of them in the nesting trees at one of our local preserves.They are so coy and – I dare say – cute, with their impossibly large bills and fuzzy heads! Our Wood Storks are among the later nesting birds. They breed “. . . just in time for the traditional season of lowest water when prey items will be concentrated in shrunken wetlands, providing good hunting so the storks can feed their young.” (Florida Audubon). By this time next year, they’ll be large and beautiful, with solid, dark, wood-like bills, and leathery bald heads, and be able to forage on their own, like these adult Wood Storks wading in the in the shallow water of the marsh.
