The Wood Stork May Get Room To Stretch Its Wings~

A pond or small lake with an island in it,
A Florida Wood Stork
A Florida Wood Stork
within the Perico Preserve will soon become
a new nesting habitat for some of Florida's
most Threatened or Endangered birds, like little
blue herons, snowy egrets and white ibis and the
most eagerly anticipated member, who may
hopefully join this list, is also one of Florida's most
Endangered birds, the Wood Stork.
The new Manatee County Rookery, which should be finished by July 2013, will have the island in the middle, to deter the rats and raccoons who would pose a significant threat in the rearing of little ones, for parent birds.
Construction on this new home for Florida's winged ones in trouble,
will begin in about two months.
Stay tuned for updates~
