Abstract:
Colonies of wood storks, Nyeteria americana, and other wading birds were surveyed in South Florida, excluding Everglades National park, and the locations of colonies during 1971 and 1972 were given. Populations of birds were estimated by direct aerial and ground counts. A total of 1368 breeding pairs of wood storks were counted in 1971, of which 1200 were found in Corkscrew Swamp. About 1500 storks were fledged in 1971 but only 200 fledged in 1972. Most other large wading birds did not breed in 1971 because of drought; however, about 37,000 pair (including 10,000 cattle egrets) nested in 1972.
