Wood Storks in a Dead Tree

There were hundreds of Wood Storks in the trees at the back of the field and in the rice field canals, most of them tucked down or just too far away for good images. This dead tree served as a perch for a small group of storks and couple stray White Ibis as they rotated in and out of the distant trees.

One or two would land and almost immediately on or two would ext the tree. This was another one of those natural happenings that seemed to have a secret signal.

There was another canal between me and this tree but that water didn’t seem appealing to any of the wading birds on this afternoon.

The fluffy white clouds were building up pretty quickly and provided a more interesting background than plain blue sky.
