The Viera Wetlands roads were closed today, but I saw some Wood Storks that were flying by me over a retention pond.

Nice shots Ira, I have seen more wood storks this year than any year since I have been watching.
I hear that the dry weather we have had for the past two or three years is really helping them establish breeding grounds.

If it rains, they close the dike roads to vehicle traffic to avoid damage to the roads. Even more nowdays because of budget shortfalls due to the economy.

Wonderful shots, Ira.

Looks like that may be the stork that brought a couple of my friends kids!
