A wood stork is a large water bird that lives in the southeastern United States, Central America, northern South America and the Caribbean. It’s 2 to 4 feet tall and can have a wingspan up to five and a half feet. They feed by wading in the water on their long legs and snapping up fish and other small animals in their wetland habitat.
The wood stork is an endangered species. There are only about 9,000 left in the wild.
The Wood Stork (formally known as the Wood Ibis) has an interesting way of catching it’s prey. Instead of snapping fish from above, it holds its beak open underwater and traps the minnows that swim in between. They can eat 400 pounds of fish in breeding season. They are the only stork native to the United States.
