Wood Storks often feed in packs, probing the water with their beaks and stirring up all manor of water creatures. It’s hard to say what it might be, but you can see the tiny size of the catch the closest bird is tossing.
An optical illusion here, of the first Wood Stork scratching the next one’s head.
The group wades along, often swallowing their prey without even lifting their heads.
Another small catch is visible as the left-most bird gives his snack a flip.
