The Storks Return...

Not delivering babies-ha!  Just visiting our little lake with 1 Egret!  What a joy to see!  All the pictures were taken through the den window, so the quality is not good.  I did not want to take the chance of going outside and scaring them away.

 They are really graceful for such a large wading bird. Their heads are rather unattractive as they are bald as adults.  They scratch along the bottom as they go, probably to stir a meal up which muddies the water.

I hope you enjoyed the return of the Wood Storks.  Thank you for visiting and do come again soon!

My wild heart to yours...

Oh they are just so beautiful. It must be very nice to be able to look outside your window and see them wading around having fun. Lucky you! Thanks for sharing. Have a great weekend.

I think your photos are great! You make me wish I lived near you. How I'd love to see live storks!

PS. Glad to hear no storks are delivering packages at your house-Gave me a little scare! Tee-hee!

So you have a pair!! Oh, do you think maybe stork babies? Wouldn't that be exciting!!! I never knew about their strange heads till you told us! Are all storks like that I wonder? I love your reflections, too!

Kerrie, I think your photos are great. And, it is wonderful that you have so much nature occurring near enough to watch.
