Wood Stork.
 
There are fewer birds that are so graceful in flight but have a face only a mother could love as they say, than that of the Wood Stork. They are big and clumsy on land all in all, but are very graceful when they take flight. There numbers seem to be increasing again and they are a more common sight now. It is interesting how important the balance of herons, egrets, spoonbills and storks for an area to thrive properly. Each does a slightly different “job” in the marshes and mangroves. Once again an example of how we humans can mess things up when given the opportunity. Thankfully some of the balance is returning.
