Birds- Wood Stork


Wood Stork is a large American wading bird and is the only stork that breeds in North America. Their dark brown bald head, a dark face and woody looking neck give them the name Wood Stork. Right now it is in the endangered list, there are plans to upgrade it to the threatened. With wingspan of more than six feet they are normally above three feet high.

  10. What a wonderful bird to see! So glad you shared it with us.
    I have recently invested in the 'Endangered Species' book, it is very frightening how many birds are extinct and threatened by extinction.

  12. Wonderful looking bird - we sort of! My sooty oystercatchers are a different species to the ones in America - but they do look very similar.
