Artist's Description

Marabou Stork, Leptoptilos crumeniferus, known as the undertaker bird. The Marabou stork is 4 to 5 feet, 1.15 to 1.5 m high. The wing span is close to 9 feet, 3 m. The marabou storks head is nearly bald and scab encrusted. This makes it cleaner for the marabou stork to eat carrion without getting its feathers blood soaked. A pendulous flesh colored gular sac hangs below the throat when inflated and indicates sexual maturity.
Photographed at Lake Nakuru National Park, Kenya, East Africa.Canon 500D, Tamron zoom lens
