Wood Storks continue remarkable comeback

If you missed the article by Bo Petersen in today’s Post & Courier, be sure to check it out!

As the article states, “The storks set a record this year with 2,512 nests, according to S.C. Department of Natural Resources counts, continuing a recovery success that ranks up with species such as the bald eagle and wild turkey. They have established four colonies, or nesting groups, in Charleston County alone and one in Berkeley County, among 24 throughout the coastal counties.”

We see them frequently on Seabrook Island enjoying our marshes, ponds and flying overhead.  Most recently we saw two Wood Storks near a pond on Ocean Winds hole #9 this past Sunday!
