Feathers On Friday: Woody The Magnificent

Woody wood stork has become a frequent visitor to our backyard and I’m always so happy to see him. Today his feathers were looking particularly pristine and well groomed.

It takes a lot of effort, to look this good.

Just before he left, he called out to me, “Wow, look at me now! I hope you’ve got a good photo.”

Then he strutted away, no doubt on his way to impress his buddies, or maybe a young lady wood stork.

Wishing you all a very good weekend. It’s been raining such a lot here in Florida, but I can see “enough blue sky now to make a sailor a pair of trousers”, as my favourite childhood author Enid Blyton once wrote. Now that was such a long time ago, but still sticks in my mind.

  1. Woody the Magnificent is such a marvelous name. Look at Woody strut around with his white feathers. I am sure he will be back for more camera time soon πŸ˜„ That is a funny quote by Enid Blyton. I loved reading her books when I was younger. She wrote so many classics 😊

  2. That blue sky/ sailor trousers line coming to mind reminds me of how fun it is when pieces of literature stick with us and Surface at different times πŸ˜‰ keeps life connected and rich

  3. Woody does look fine, Sylvia.
    In the third photo, I first thought he’d mastered the mystical art of levitation, but I spotted his other leg just behind there! πŸ™‚
    Have a good Saturday!

  4. He is so confident and seems enjoying being in the limelight πŸ™‚

    Beautiful photos, Sylvia πŸ™‚

    Now a days, I am behind birds and butterflies to escape from all the negativity around…

    It is just amazing how soothing it’s to just watch them and photographing, right?

  5. I’ve never seen a wood stork before but he’s quite attractive and also very inclusive with his white, dark grey, some black, and some orange. Quite PC! πŸ™‚ Enjoy your weekend.


  6. Woody reminds me of Beau Brummell, the legendary Regency figure of fashion. Beau noted that β€œStarch makes the gentleman.” And Woody is certainly a gentlemen with his starched white shirt and meticulous sense of what it proper. He is certainly up to his name, Woody The Magnificent. A wonderful way to begin the weekend, Sylvia!

  7. I love that saying Sylvia. woody is looking mighty fine I will say. Lovely conversation the two of you had as well. Wishing you a great weekend. you may have rain but we have LOTS of snow. Winter has made an early appearance. Have a great weekend!

  8. I remember that quote too! When I was growing up our neighbour was a teacher and she always quoted it, I spent a lot of time working out if there was enough blue in the sky for a sunny day. Take me back.
    Woody looks extremely well groomed and handsome.
    Have a good weekend.
