Jason Lauritsen, left, of the Audobon Society, Will Wellman, center, and Ian Burtoszek, of the Conservancy of Southwest Florida, reposition a net near decoy birds in a ditch just north of Immokalee Road where they are trying to catch wood storks to collect data and release them quickly for a study for the University of Florida. Two people sit in a blind, or a camouflaged tent, waiting for the wood stork to land in the designated area, then trigger a rocket net to cast over the bird.
