Photographer's Note

Another photo from my bike trip to Mozambique...

I decided to post another photo of the storks I posted yesterday. This one was taken from far, at maximum focal length, and I still had to crop quite a bit so I think it can be sharper. However, I like the shapes they make in this photo.

Yellow-Billed Stork (Mycteria ibis) 95-105cm

Long, slightly decurved yellow bill. During the breeding season its naked facial skin is red and its wing coverts and back are tinged with pink.

Its habitat is lakes and large rivers and estuaries. It is normally silent, except during the breeding season when it gives loud squeaks and hisses.
