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. #10543632

Description

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.

Exif: F Number: 6.3, Exposure Bias Value: 0.00, ExposureTime: 1/8000 seconds, Flash: did not fire, compulsory flash mode, ISO: 1600, White balance: Auto white balance, FocalLength: 160.00 mm, Model: NIKON D7000
