Wood Stork (Mycteria americana)

During my trip to Cancun I encountered this Wood Stork in the ruins of Tulum


This is a subtropical and tropical species which breeds in much of South America, Central America and the Caribbean. The Wood Stork is the only stork that presently breeds in North America. In the United States there is a small and endangered breeding population in Florida, Georgia, and South Carolina, along with a recently discovered rookery in southeastern North Carolina. On the other hand, in Santa Catarina state (Brazil) its decline seems to have been reversed: after an absence between the late 1960s and the mid-1990s, the species is now again regularly encountered there, in particular in the Tubarão River region

Hi Everton,

Boy that is one heck of a beak on this Wood Stork, what an amazing looking bird.

Excellent detail in the whites of the feathers looks good in its natural surroundings, t.f.s

Cheers Rick :)
