Nor for wood stork nesting in South Florida. Storks tend to be more productive when they initiate nesting early, which consequently is tied to peak water levels at the end of the rainy season. Over the 50+ years on record, the stork colony had never missed 2 breeding season in a row at Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary, until the 2008 season. If they fail to nest at Corkscrew again this year, it will mark the 5th such event in the past 6 years. Given the wood storks status as an indicator of wetland health, this is not a rosy endorsement for the SWFL environment.
