The Florida Wood Stork is a fairly large bird. In Florida there are many white wading birds. The birds tend to gather in flocks of other white birds near many of our local ponds. The eat small fish, turtles and lizards. According to the Audubon Society these used to be mainly inhabitants of South Florida, but are now more common in Central Florida. This photo was taken at Cove Cay Golf Course near Clearwater Florida. Our only native stork in North America, it is a very large, heavy-billed bird that wades in the shallows of southern swamps. (Though this one was on the golf course off of Tampa Bay) It flies with slow wingbeats, and flocks often soar very high on warm days. Young Wood Storks have noisy begging calls, but adults are almost silent except for hissing and bill clappering.
About L Bosco
I love to tell stories. About twenty years ago I had my first freelance travel article accepted by a magazine. Much to my surprise, the magazine expected photos along with words. I had not taken any during the preliminary work for my article. I drove back to the site and took the photos for the article with my little Olympus digital camera. The article was published with those very amateur photos. In time, I bought an Olympus OMD-EM5, a great camera for nature and travel photographers and discovered that I enjoyed telling stories with pictures more than I did with words. The last twenty year have been an incredibly exciting time as resources for photographers have exploded. I have been lucky enough to have some great teachers along the way...
