After being kept in a reservation for 30 years, the wood stork, which is an American long-legged bird’s specie, is now erased from the endangered species list. The population of these birds has spread in the southeastern part of the country according to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
The wood storks presented concerns to scientists in 1984 as the population decreased every year by 5%. This was the year when they agreed the birds needed protection and placed them on the list of endangered species.
