A resident breeder in lowland wetlands with trees, the wood stork builds a large stick nest in a tree in the forest. They nest in colonies of up to 25 nests in a tree. Reproductive cycle of wood storks "is activated when the wells dry enough to keep the fish in sufficient numbers to focus an efficient feeding chicks. competition for food is fierce, and when food is scarce, survive only girl. weeks chicks fed 15 times per day, and growing. During the breeding season, need wood storks more than 400 pounds (180 kg) of fish to feed themselves and their young. If youth are 4 weeks old, the parents leave the nest in search of food, and this is continued until the chicks leave "farm" or the nest. A colony is considered successful when their parents developed an average of at least 1.5 young per nest

Every adult in nest defense against predators more. Crows, vultures, starlings and striped skunks try eggs Raccoons are collecting the most important nest predators, and can cause the failure of the colony almost complete when the water dries under nests in dry years because they can easily access the nest with dry soil under the tree.
