You may recall the young Wood Stork we had wandering our shores last November. See story here – Wandering Wood Stork in Massachusetts (Very Rare)
Amazingly, a Wood Stork has been calling New Harbor, Nova Scotia, home for the past week or so. I think quite possibly it could be our Wood Stork. Many thanks to Rowland Spear, Angela MacDonald, and Susan Holmes from Nova Scotia, who generously shared their photos. In the images, you can see the young Wood Stork’s face transitioning from youth to adult and becoming darker and balder, timing-wise, following in what may very well be the progression of Cape Ann’s Wood Stork.

Hi I’m from New Harbour, NS and he had been there a month before we notice him. He was here for more than 2 months, but I was more amazed to see the people from across Canada excited to see this rare visitor. Hope his journey is still continuing.
Hi Donna, I am so behind on corresponding and hope you see this. Thank you for sharing! I wonder if he is still there??
