Edge Wade and Joyce Bathke found the immature Wood Stork at Four Rivers Conversation Area at 2:45p this afternoon, Sunday, August 29.

From the restrooms at the headquarters, go 50 yards, turn left.  You will pass a stone monument on your right at 1/10 mile.  Keep going.  The road arcs right then bends left and then bends back right.  At about 8/10 mile from the original turn is a culvert in the middle of a right bend.  Stop before the culvert and look to your left.  You will see a large dead tree againsat the tall green background trees.  This is where the birds flush when disturbed.  The Stork prefers the lower right.  Proceeding to the culvert, you can see the pool where they feed.  The Stork has a more horizontal posture than the Great Egrets when feeding.
