Comeback Story
  Comeback Story
Comeback Story
Spoke w/a Birder while at the Ibis Colony Sat. We were both in agreement that there were many more Wood Storks this year. Besides which this picture shows they are actively building nests. There was a Stork flying by with nesting material constantly while there. If this is any indication they are well on there way to getting off the endangered list.
First time I have seen them this close in breeding plumage.

Fantastic inflight capture Jack!! Good to here about the comeback! Not as many birds at the feeding stations here as I think it is such a mild winter with not a whole lot of snow, they can just forage naturally.

WOW! Instant fav, Jack! I love shooting Wood Storks, and this one is a beauty! Wonderful in-flight action with great detail and clarity! And I love to see them decked out in their iridescent green! I never knew there was an Ibis Rookery in West Palm - I'm going to make it a point to go there next time I'm down.
