The Wood Stork is a large American wading bird. The adult is a large bird which stands 45 in tall and spans 72 in across the wings. It appears all white on the ground, with blackish-gray legs and pink feet. In flight, the trailing edge of the wings is black. The head is dark brown with a bald, black face, and the thick downcurved bill is dusky yellow. Juvenile birds are a duller version of the adult, generally browner on the neck, and with a paler bill. The bare head and the long bill render the Wood Stork distinctive from other large waders in its range
