Wood Stork
Mycteria americana
Order: CICONIIFORMES
Family: CICONIIDAE

Description from AllAboutBirds.org © Cornell Lab of Ornithology with permission Wood Stork Range

Large, white Wood Storks wade through southeastern swamps and wetlands. Although this stork doesn't bring babies, it is a good flier, soaring on thermals with neck and legs outstretched. This bald-headed wading bird stands just over 3 feet tall, towering above almost all other wetland birds. It slowly walks through wetlands with its long, hefty bill down in the water feeling for fish and crustaceans. This ungainly looking stork roosts and nests in colonies in trees above standing water.
