Wood Stork (Mycteria americana)

CENTRAL FLORIDA CRITTER OF THE DAY: Wood Stork (Mycteria americana)

Hanging out next to the front culvert. There are crawdads in there as well as mosquito fish, and snakes (EAT THE COTTONMOUTHS PLEASE!!!!)

Diet includes fish, crayfish,, frogs, reptiles.

Federal Status: Endangered but global population seems to be secure.
