Wood storks don't live in many places in the United States, so it's a pretty big treat to get to see one. I've met folks whose houses are teeming with them in Florida, but down here by us it's just the lonely bird or two in the summer time. Then, in September, they disappear further south. This is actually the third Wood Stork I've seen, but the first time I ever managed to snap a picture. It's not the best photo (it's the best one I have though!) but I really wanted to share this slightly ugly but totally majestic bird. I took this picture at Estero Llano Grande State Park here in Weslaco on September 1, 2012.
