The Jabiru or Black- necked Stork is Australia’s largest wading bird and our only stork. It stands 1.3m -1.5 m in height and its wingspan is a massive 2.3m from tip to tip. The head colour is an amazing glossy, shimmery, black with blue, green and purple. They have very long bright red legs and a straight black bill which is used to scoop and probe in the water for their food. Food consists of small invertebrates found in swamps and wetlands. Frogs, tadpoles, fish, eels and wetland plants are therefore its main food source.

Photo’s are taken from my sister Tracy Douglass Darwin holiday ,l have never visited NT but after seeing some of the lovely places she went its now on the agenda (after Tasi ) ,thanks for the use of your pictures sis :-)
