Adults White Storks measure on average 100–115 cm (39–45 in) from beak tip to end of tail, with a 195–215 cm (77–85 in) wingspan. They breed in Europe and they are long-distance migrants, wintering in Africa, as far south as South Africa, or on the Indian subcontinent. A carnivore, the White Stork eats a wide range of animal prey, including insects, fish, amphibians, reptiles, small mammals, and small birds. It is a monogamous breeder, but does not pair for life.
