Wood Stork

Wood Stork Walk About

I’ve mentioned that the water has been very high in the old rice field pond at Magnolia Plantation & Gardens, which has kept the wading bird population down. Last year’s dredging project left a higher stretch of ground that is now covered with a bit of water and attractive to these birds. The vegetation at the edge was recently mowed providing a nice view.

This group was just standing around when I passed by. Usually it is the Snowy Egrets that make a fuss but this Wood Stork took a turn, at what I do not know.

I left them to it and went around to the other side of the pond. At first I couldn’t see the Stork; his position in the above photos was behind that tall grass. Then he took a walk, leaving those Snowy Egrets behind.
