White Stork

White Stork Ciconia ciconia
Ethiopia
15 January 2014

    This is the iconic stork with which everyone is familiar from the images of it nesting on roof tops and other locations close to human habitation. In fact, in many areas it has become singularly dependent on such structures, and is the stork which delivers babies according to popular legend.
    It winters throughout eastern and southern Africa, with some birds in the Horn of Africa. This individual was seen in a small wetland on the way to Sof Omar.
