About the Wood Stork
Also known as: Wood Ibis, Flinthead, Ironhead, Preacher
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.
