Low Lake Levels are Good for the Birds?

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Wood storks, herons and other wading birds benefit from receding lakes. Fish become locked in the small pools left behind when water levels decrease. Wading birds feast on the trapped fish. As a matter of fact, these birds raise their youngsters at this time when food is easily caught.  This is a natural cycle that has occurred before people settled in Florida. Soon, the rainy season will begin and our lakes and rivers will swell with water forcing the waders to the edges of the waterways.
