Wood Stork Babies!

I was heading to the Jacksonville Zoo with a friend and our kids when I remembered the wood stork babies were due to hatch any day!

(Read about the 2011 nesting season and hatchlings here. My recent post about the nesting preparations can be found here for the 2012 nesting season.)

Let’s talk about good timing – my zoo membership is set to expire in only a few days and, from the screeching and squawking coming from the direction of the cypress trees, it was pretty obvious that the babies had hatched…and they were hungry!

About Dena

I'm a suburban Clevelander by way of Oklahoma City, by way of North Florida, by way of Southern Maryland, by way of Upper Michigan, by way of Northern Italy, by way of Lower Michigan, by way of Texas. Because of living in so many places, I have something in common with almost everyone I meet. I love reading, writing, and American history (especially reading or writing about American history). I'm interested in culture of place, historical trauma, and writing about the kinds of histories most people don't know about.

    So if a stork brings human babies, who the heck brings stork chicks?
