Bird Pic Of The Week

Wood Stork

(Mycteria americana)

Where: Orlando, FL • Gatorland (14501 South Orange Blossom Trail • www.gatorland.com

Notes: I don't think I've ever been anywhere that offered more opportunities for flight shots of wading birds than Gatorland in Orlando, Florida. There were chances to photograph both a diversity of species, and in many cases, possibilities to photograph each type of bird multiple times. The extensive breeding colony that surrounds one of the larger alligator ponds was teaming with herons, egrets, storks and more. Adult birds flew in with food or nest building materials. They'd drop off their load and then depart for another round. The long rectangular shape of the rookery pond channels many birds right past the viewing platform and board walk. This was the best position to capture photographs from. Wood Storks stand about four feet tall and have a five foot plus wingspan. They fly with their neck extended out, unlike herons and egrets. I like the way this photo captured the iridescent colors of the outer black wing feathers of this stork.
