I've never been a "birder" or had any particular interest, I appreciated birds in general but until we moved to SWFL I wasn't drawn to them as I am now. It's hard not to be enthralled with the great varieties that live here. Walking along and seeing egrets, herons, anhingas, ibis and wood storks among others, is such a change from the run of the mill birds one usually sees their neighborhood. I imagine people that grew up here take them for granted but that doesn't apply to me. I find the variety fascinating and enjoy seeing them around as part of my everyday life. After hearing of them I became especially enamored with Wood Storks due to their unique appearance. My photo of two baby wood storks is among my favorites pictures.
