Wood Stork Patrolling His Domain

This is the first time I’ve seen a Wood Stork at this pond in the three years I’ve been visiting.

He’s standing on an Alligator ramp that is completely out of the water due to the pond being drained for repairs.

A number of wading birds were taking advantage of the low water, standing around where just the week before the water would have been up to the tops of their necks.

The Wood Stork was more interested in the platform itself.

The last image was taken a few days earlier when there was still a foot or so (30 centimeters) of water in the pond.
