The Storks of Shoppers Way Lane

Hidden behind a large shopping center - just off busy US-19 in Port Richey, Florida
you will find a small pond with cypress trees and ringed with mangroves. Easy to
miss driving by but the perfect spot for a Rookery of American Wood Storks!


The American Wood Stork is the only stork that presently breeds in North America.

After a successful three-decade conservation effort resulting in an increased population in the southeastern United States, the wood stork was removed from the endangered species list and upgraded to threatened on June 26, 2014.


This particular spot shares its space with the occasional Great White Egret as well.
Storks seem to be neighborly that way.

Best viewing is from the locked gate on Shoppers way Lane in Port Richey, Florida.
(Best GPS address to enter: 59 Shoppers way Lane.)
Very close and just North of the fenced in pond there is space behind a warehouse where you might park your vehicle for a few minutes. Take-offs and landings are numerous and fun to watch for the whole family. No charge to look.
