Just another WordPress.com weblog about Nature and Wildlife

This Wood Stork was spotted on Sunday, Feb. 11, 2018 on the shore of the lovely little golf course pond at the Torri Pines golf course in The Villages, FL.  I had posted this past week about several different birds spotted there during that photo-taking visits.

We have a few Wood Storks here all year around but we do see more of these big birds in the winter months.  The Wood Storks are usually seen in very small groups or as singles.  I think I have only seen a larger group of maybe around a dozen Wood Storks together once here.  Wood Storks mostly will hunt by scooping with their large sturdy bill into the water or softer mud.  They eat small aquatic animals, aquatic insects, aquatic mollusks and these birds will occasionally eat grains roots and seeds.
