Birds > Ciconiiformes > Woolly-necked Stork Ciconia episcopus


One could say that we were lucky this time. In Thailand only one representative of the stork family - the Asian openbill - was photographed. When I was back from other trips I could not widen a group of the representatives of this family on my website. In South Africa, we managed to photograph the yellow-billed stork, the African openbill and the woolly-necked stork. So I have three more representatives of storks. Of course with varying degrees of success  in terms of photographic effect. The easiest to take and for a longer time  that I had the pleasure to photograph was a yellow-billed stork, several times a woolly-necked stork and once for a short moment an African openbill. The quality of photos is directly proportional to the number of my observations. This text is common to these three species.
