Wood Stork [Mycteria americana]

The wood stork is a large, long-legged wading bird with a heavy, down-curved bill. It has an unfeathered head and sports white plumage elswhere with black flight feathers and tail. It is the only true stork in the United States. It nests in the tops of cypress trees growing in water and is highly gregarious. The stork feeds primarily on small fishes it catches with its beak.

Historically, there were 60,000 wood breeding pairs along the Gulf Coast from Florida to Texas and along the Atlantic Coast from Florida to South Carolina (1930 estimate). In 1980, the number of breeding pairs was estimated at 4,800. Currently, rookeries are restricted to Florida, Georgia and South Carolina.

Major factors affecting the wood stork are disturbance of their feeding areas by urban development and predation by raccoon predation.

Primary recovery efforts focus on the development of artificial foraging areas in areas where the stork's natural froaging area has been destroyed.
