A face only a mother could love.

These are all wood stork babies at various ages.  All were born this spring or into summer. There’s a small mangrove island in the middle of a small pond in north Tampa that gets a lot of wood storks, cormorants and other water birds nesting every spring. I didn’t get up there until mid June and I thought most of the babies would have already grown up but there were still a few young ones there.

  1. Aw, these babies are adorable and you have captured their personalities! Wood storks are such interesting birds. I love how the adults always look so solemn.
