We were so happy to get to interact with a couple of Wood Storks at Tuscawilla Park last weekend.
According to Audubon, “The Wood Stork is one of Florida's signature wading birds, a long-legged, awkward-looking bird on land that soars like a raptor in the air. Like many Florida birds associated with wetlands, the Wood Stork has suffered from the destruction and degradation of our state's wetlands. Today, the Wood Stork is classed "Endangered" by the State of Florida and the federal government.”
We forgot our ‘day old bread’ from home so we stopped at Publix and bought a loaf of bread on sale to feed the birds. We were so glad we did!
The birds followed us around while we walked at the Park.
It was amazing!

Enjoy your weekend.
We’re tuned in to the Weather Channel!
