Saddlebilled Stork

The difference between the male and female is that the female has a yellow eye and no wattles.

Beautiful images, Joan. I've yet to see one of these beauties in East or South Africa! Hope you're having a great weekend. Greetings Jo

hello Joan,

such a wonderful bird, i love seeing your captures of it.

i just read on your side bar that you helped someone with their fear of spiders, how wonderful. You are right, i am sure, that you have done other things of wonder by sharing here. Such a good thing!

lovely sunday to you!

Was interesting to note this difference. The yellow eye was easier to see than the wattle.
