Wood Storks: Everglades Indicator Species

The Wood Stork (Mycteria americana) is the only breeding stork in North America, and is an indicator species for the health of the Everglades.

This large wading bird has been taken off the Endangered list, and is now considered a Threatened species.

It's always a great day to go birding in Florida!
