Wood Storks in Flight

Wood Stork Exodus

I’ve mentioned the dilemma of choice in previous posts: stick with what is right in front of me or move where I might capture something else. I was happily photographing Roseate Spoonbills in a pond when I noticed these Wood Storks standing in a Pine Tree at the end of the dike.

Stick with the Spoonies or see if I can get some nice Wood Stork images?

I waited too long and the Wood Storks took off.

It was clear they were leaving not just settling into another tree as they circled to an altitude where they fly for distance.

There were at least thirty, many more than had been visible in that tree from my vantage point.
