 Salton Sea, CA

Wood Storks are uncommon summer residents of the Salton Sea.  They are found almost every summer in the extreme southeast corner of the Sea, usually not far from the corner of Shrimpf and Davis Roads.  Take any of the levee roads extending into the Sea west of Davis Road and search the shoreline.

Photos taken with Canon D10,  70-200mm lens, and 1.5 doubler.  Henry Detwiler, 15 June 2003
