A young wood stork gets an itch scratched by an attending parent out at the Wakodahatchee Wetlands. The place is overrun with wood storks, their nests and their babies right now.
The anhingas come in a far second in nesting space occupied, with the blue herons, green herons, tri-colored herons, glossy ibis and egrets lodged in whatever nooks and crannies they can find.
It’s a popular place this winter, so be prepared to wait for a parking spot. More photos below:
