A face only a mother could love

Woods storks are listed as an uncommon bird on the All About Birds page and are listed as federally threatened. They are fairly common here in the Tampa bay area. I see them pretty regularly at most of the parks that I visit.  There is a rookery in Tampa that has a large population of them nesting. I love going to see them in the late spring and watch them raising their babies. The babies are just as homely as the parents. These were taken in late April.

Many of the storks were still flirting and building nests,

  1. Hello, I think the wood stork chicks are cute. They were one of my favorite Florida birds. Great series of photos. Thank you for linking up your post. Enjoy your day, wishing you a happy weekend!

  2. We’ve seen wood storks in other parts of Florida. Maybe they stick to just a few nesting areas. They have never struck me as especially unattractive, but I see what you mean.

    be well… mae at maefood.blogspot.com
