July 30, 2016 – Black-necked Stork (Ephippiorhynchus asiaticus)

These storks are found in India, Thailand, and Northern Australia. They are carnivorous, hunting fish, reptiles, crabs, rodents, and small birds and also sometimes eating carrion. Males and females look similar, except for the color of their irises, which are brown in males and yellow in females. They build large nesting platforms in tall trees near water, from sticks and other vegetation. Pairs stay bonded for several years and share in the incubation and care of chicks.
