Our neighbors told us that the previous tenants used to feed them. We are not feeding them.... because it is bad for these birds to be fed by humans and become dependent on them (they have other food available) and it is illegal to feed any endangered wildlife in Florida. I found out with a little google research that the wood stork is an endangered species. A curious and beautiful wading bird, i can't believe they come right to our door! wow, will wonders never cease!
