Wood Stork

 My first wood stork of the season.  Last year I saw many in the fall and then they went elsewhere.

This bird is the equivalent of a teenager.  It has a mostly bald head, like adults, but some remaining wispy hairs, like a youth.  I hope this is the first of many wood storks in the community, and I hope they stay around longer this year.

A peculiar bird.

Wood Storks don't migrate much. They do move around Florida seeking areas with water and food. If the food supply is good, they will stay around. You got a fine photo of this juvenile bird.
