Beauty it ain’t

[singlepic id=125 w= h= float=center]

Let’s just say that marabou storks (Leptoptilos crumeniferus) will never win a beauty competition, at least not if members of any other species participate. Like vultures they’re mainly scavengers and adapted to sticking their heads into bloody carcasses. But unlike vultures they also like lake shores where they can catch the odd fish, frog, and even small birds, well, basically everything that they can swallow. And they especially like landing sites of fishing boats, from where they happily clean up all the left-overs of the daily catch.
