Yellowbilled Stork

This is a non-breeding migrant bird found in the central, north and north-eastern regions.
Their habitat includes inland dams, rivers and floodplains.
Food consists of frogs, fish, crustaceans and insects. They walk in shallow water with their beaks held open and partly immersed catching prey by feel.

They were fun to watch fishing. I got some decent video.

We get a lot of storks in the Eastern Cape in summer. Not so much around PE but further east
