This baby blue has turquoise around the head, a white stripe in front, neck to legs, and a bluish gray body.  There is some reddish at the lower neck.

This bird was fishing on the surface of the water. A minute after this photo, a huge adult great blue emerged from hiding across the way, chasing the little one up the river about 30 yards.  Evidently the baby was in training for hunting.

Then the great blue dove into the water and emerged with a black fish in its beak.

George Held told me that he never saw a wood stork in person.  Did he ever see one deliver a baby?   This time of year they start appearing in large numbers in Southwest Fla.

A couple of years ago, an entourage of them visited my backyard in Tropicana Co-op in Ft. Myers.   It reminded me of a Rotary meeting. (photo below)

I love wood storks.  They seem like important gentlemen.  Their beaks are long and curved and they stand erect.

Anyhow, George,  here is a photo from that event:
