When you’ve got at itch…it’s nice to have Mom handy

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.IMG_2671c

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:

If you want to see all my other ‘itch’ photos, just put the word ‘itch’ in the search box, upper right.
