WW 2015 #10 - Marabou Stork

Photo: Walter Kitundu

I took the two close up photos of a Marabou stork at BirdPark in Malta the other day. From behind, this fella looked just like a balding old man huddling in a thick black cloak with a high ruff collar, which goes some way to explaining why the common name for the Marabou is the "undertaker bird". Marabous are huge wading birds from tropical Africa, and dare I say not the most attractive of creatures to look at, bless them!
