Infested With Storks

Ahh Anto, my Scorpio Wing, and Postal Salute’s International Man of Leisure. Yes, that is a newly dubbed title.

I was wondering whether Kampala is really infested with storks, or if he meant pelicans like the Kenyan ones pictured here (really, human sized storks?). I asked the internets about it and discovered the Greater Adjutant – Whoa! Sorry I doubted you, Anto!

Further investigation found the videos below, of the Marabou, Greater Adjutant, and Lesser Adjutant, respectively. Apparently they’re all related, but the African Marabou is the one that Anto would have seen in Uganda. I actually find the sound of them clapping their mouths shut on their victims to be really soothing. Is that strange?

I should make trip up to the Bronx Zoo to see the Lesser Adjutant… their eyes and beaks are so mesmerizing.
