Wood storks mating
One local wetlands here in Florida is inundated this time of year, starting in mid-January, with wood storks who gather in the hundreds to build nests and breed. Some tree islands of 2400 sq. feet in size will host as many as 25 nesting pairs of wood stork...along with a dozen anhinga nests, several hundred roosting ibis and cattle egret, and 6-10 iguanas. The islands are so full of birds and wildlife that if you tossed a rock up, you would be hard pressed not to hit a bird.
