It’s not unusual for me to be driving down the road and suddenly see something out of the corner of my eye that elicits a “WTF?” There I go, swerving to the side of the road, brakes screeching, flashers on, and jumping out of the car with my camera.
That’s how I caught this pair hanging out with a flock of spoonbills. I had to go online to verify that they were indeed, wood storks. I had never seen one in the wild before, although I suspect they are fairly common in some parts. Turns out, this is the only kind of stork that breeds in North America.
