another one I hadn't seen before, -echoing the other comments, had no idea storks heads and necks looked like that. Have never had the luck/opportunity to see one flying, would love to see the black wing feathers that Vicki describes. Great capture, Marsha Sea

Great wood stork image, Marsha. His feathers are so ruffled that he looks like a jeuvenile. As ugly as they are up close, they are sure gorgeous when flying with their black wing feathers. Nice job on this one. Vicki

Thanks Carol, Talsi, and Don. It appeared to be a full grown stork. The featherless head and neck, which resembles a buzzards, is because they feed in the water and stick their heads underwater a lot. But, you are right Don, it does look like un unfortunate mixture of stork and buzzard. lol.

Wow, it looks like a Buzzard and a Stork did something they shouldn't have, and this is their son...lol. Cool capture Marsha. Don

Nice image - He stand out so well from the blue background. Is it a young stork?

Great closeup of the Bird! Carol

Thank you Steve. The stork was actually in the canal at the edge of my backyard. My back yard isn't actually water. lol.

An extraordinary and rather untidy looking bird! The exposure is perfect to capture detail in both the white feathers and the dark neck. Also, your back yard looks very wet, Marsha!
