Marabou Stork, (Leptoptilos crumeniferus)

The Marabou Stork is found throughout most of tropical Africa. They prefer dry open savannahs near large lakes or rivers. Their wanderings are designed to keep them in close proximity to the largest concentrations of prey. Marabou Storks will eat just about any kind of animal, dead or alive. Living prey includes termites, fish, locusts, grasshoppers, army-worm caterpillars, frogs, rodents, crocodile eggs and hatchlings, quelea nestlings, doves, young and adult flamingos, cormorant nestlings, and pelican chicks.
