The only stork breeding in the United States. Wood Storks were placed on the Federal Endangered Species list in 1984. They were downlisted from endangered to threatened in June 2014. This was due in no small part public & private conservation and recovery efforts in coastal Georgia.
This individual is roosting on a freshwater pond on private property in SE GA, McIntosh County. The property owners have committed to preserving the pond and adjacent wetlands.
