Oct 13 – BOTD – Great Blue Heron w/Wood stork

Great Blue Heron & Wood Stork fishing in shallow water at Lettuce Lake Park, Tampa, FL.

It’s been a while since I featured a bird of the day. Here is my entry for Granny Shot It’s  Bird of the Day (BOTD) challenge.

You are getting a two-fer today. In the foreground you are seeing the stealthy Great Blue Heron. In the background, you are observing the Wood Stork. Both are avid fisherman…fisherwomen…fisherbirds…well, that’s what they do for a living…they fish! 😉 This photo was taken at Lettuce Lake Park in Tampa, Florida.

I was inspired to feature the Wood Stork because of a fellow blogger, novelist & emmy award winning journalist da-AL. She posted an Australian White Ibis & I responded to her about how much it looks like the Wood Stork. She had never heard of the Wood Stork. Check out her blog by clicking on the link above.

    • I’d love to see them return period!! They are not that common. There was 1 in Gainesville FL earlier in the year. It would be a life bird for me. We never saw it on numerous trips down there when I had to go to the VA. Still searching for it.

    • Thank you. I wasn’t young when I got into birding and it certainly keeps me on my toes along with my hubby who thinks he’s still a teenager. He’s 64 & can do circles around me. Glad you like the photos. 😊
