Woodstorks

Woodstorks are one of Florida’s wading birds. Their land is being scraped clean, wetlands and cypress swamps being filled and soon the Woodstork himself also gone. Florida is taking their land away for tax paying inhabitants. The entire beauty that was Florida is going, going then quickly gone.
I am fortunate and live near nesting Woodstorks. The guy you see is a regular visitor to our front door. Al is friendly and his gently snapping bill hasn’t enough strength to bring blood. Albert or as I call him for short Al just follows me around till I close the door staring at his sad face and big black eyes.
I never know when he’ll be back but you must see his feet and nails. Very Gothic. I don’t want to tell too much it would ruin it.
Till your next visit Al, stay safe.
