Range Tracking

Early Morning Wood Storks

Three photos of Wood Storks (Mycteria americana) caught flying in the early morning light. Though their population is on the precarious side, mainly due to habitat loss, think bulldozers, they are common enough birds to see along Florida’s Indian River Lagoon, especially around Sebastian Inlet State Park where they congregate hoping for handouts from fishermen. The scientific name refers to its large, snout-like bill, Mycteria, and where it is found, americana.
