Wood Storks

This small flock of Wood Storks were spotted at Paradise Lake in The Villages, Florida on Friday, May 12, 2017.  The wonderfully serene but unusual-looking wading birds were here to enjoy the pickings of the remaining aquatic snails, worms, small minnows, tadpoles, frogs and such in the shallow water.   The lake is extremely diminished from its normal water level.

Happily, we did have a big rain on Saturday here but it did not do too much to raise the lake’s level.  The Wood Storks were only on the lake that one day.  I hope we see them again soon!  They are one of my favorites!  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the picture.  Enjoy!
