I happened on this lone Wood Stork hunting for its supper on Sunday, July 19, 2015 in the murky water of a small lake within a park. By the way, Wood Storks use that big heavy bill to scoop through the shallow water to catch prey.
The place where the Wood Stork was located was at the end of a thin arm of the lake. The water had a lot of algae in it, and also a small amount of trash blown in from the adjacent highway. It has been very hot and stormy here in the last week.
I also saw a few ducks, geese, and a Great Egret near the area where the stork was feeding. I always enjoy seeing the Wood Storks! Please click on the thumbnail image to see a slightly larger version of that photograph. Enjoy!
