WOOD STORK

The Wood Stork, Mycteria americana, is North America's only native stork. They are related to the vultures.
Storks were scarce for many years but are making a great comeback. They've learned to beg from fishermen. This one just sailed in and landed next to me while I was watching a Great Egret. I didn't have anything to share yesterday, but I never mind paying good models.
