Wood Stork Flight

Wood Stork Flying Low

The tide was nearly low and the wading birds were steadily gathering food in the condensed water at the edge of the marsh. A group of six or eight Wood Storks waded back and forth mostly with their heads down searching for fish.

As the water continued to drain, occasionally they would fly back to where the water was deeper.

The moon-scape look of the exposed sand made this stork with his big shadow look even more pre-historic.

  1. Lovely shots of a stork in flight! Thanks for sharing. Very cute. My partner Andy and I love storks. I have a poetry blog here on WordPress and today’s poem is about storks in case you have time to look? Have a good afternoon, Sam 🙂

    1. Thanks, Sam, and thanks for stopping by. I read your poem of the storks in the Alsace region. Very interesting how less prehistoric that version of stork looks than our Wood Storks, but that are just as gawky until they take flight. I loved your description of the birds checking out the tourists around the vineyards.
