Mycteria americana, Cocoa Beach Golf Course

Mycteria americana, Wood Stork
The majestic wood stork, Mycteria americana is a great bird.  Prehistoric in appearance, wood storks are an endangered species due to wetland habitat loss from real estate development.  However, as we most always see Nature respond and adapt, wood storks are acclimating to the Urban Infrastructure.  Seen here, the wood storks are taking advantage of the minnows, frogs and small fish prey on a golf course.
