Theresa Sierra, of Lake Thomas, one recent morning was graced with the presence of this wood stork. The wood stork is a long-legged wading bird, whose height ranges from 33 inches to 44 inches. Its wing span can range from 59 inches to 65 inches. Wood storks are social birds who typically forage in groups and nest in colonies. When building a nest, both males and females collect sticks and form the nest in a tree, using greenery for the center. While clumsy and heavy-footed in water, wood storks fly like raptors effortlessly in the sky, despite their size.
