Marabou stork

Marabou stork are some of the largest landbirds out there. Some of the ones I saw around Lake Hawasa stood as high as my chest. And unlike the storks of popular culture, these ones have been known to eat children.

Beautiful, aren’t they?…

    This is super creepy. If I have bad dreams, I will leave my complaint here.

    Did you know that their seemingly white legs are actually pink, but are coated with white faeces? Yes, that’s right: they shit on their legs. Charming birds.
