After only being almost absent since yesterday around noon, the Wood Stork finally showed up in the pond viewed from the Nason Obvservation Tower.
It wasn't seen flying in, but I first saw it at 11:21am after scanning the pond constantly for the past 5 hours. Sometimes it ducks behind reeds, but is visible from along the road to the N of there.
Sadly, my brother Aaron had to leave for work before it showed up. If anyone is headed down there from Chicago tomorrow, my brother would love to come along as a navigator/ebirder/gas co-payer. If you'd like to take him up on it, his email is <aarongyllenhaal...>, and phone is (708)-203-7921.
