Wood Stork

The largest bird we saw at Gatorland rookery, and indeed on our entire trip to Florida, was the Wood Stork. A very large white bird, characterised by a dark naked head, the birds nest in the tree tops around the swamp, and can also be seen feeding in the pools alongside the boardwalk. When feeding they keep their head down and walk, unlike some birds who remain motionless waiting for prey.
