A study in 1986 at the Savannah River Site, South Carolina, USA (Coulter et al. 1987), found that up to 94 wood storks Mycteria americana and over 210 other wading birds were seen on specially constructed and managed ponds at once. Ponds were created in a 14 ha depression and stocked with fish between 1985 and 1986.
