Wood Storks are among my very favorite of the big birds. There are a lot of Wood Storks around the various ponds and lakes here in The Villages, FL, right now. They seem to come several times every year to feed and enjoy our lovely small lakes.
Wood Storks are still on the “Threatened Species” list so I am glad to see so many here. I think due to conservation efforts these birds are happily on the rebound! Wood Storks mostly feed on small fish, tadpoles and small frogs, as well as aquatic worms, snails and occasionally, grains and seeds.
