The wood stork, a large American wading bird, is no longer an endangered species after a successful three-decade conservation effort that has seen the population spread through the Southeast, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service said on Thursday. The federal agency said it had changed the status of the species to threatened. But the long-legged birds will be listed as threatened because the goal of a five-year average of 10,000 nesting pairs has not yet been reached.
