The Wood Stork is a species of stork that breeds across much of South America and coastal areas of Central America, the Caribbean, and Florida. They are mostly white in plumage with contrasting black flight feathers best seen in flight. Their heads are bald.
Wood Storks are large waders found around wetland habitats. They feed on aquatic prey items, including fish, frogs, insects, and crabs.
Wood Storks are colonial breeders, meaning that several pairs of birds will nest in close proximity to each other. Clutch size varies from one to five eggs, with three eggs being the most common. Incubation lasts around 30 days and the young birds take around 50 to 60 days to fledge.
