Painted Stork

Mycteria leucocephala

Description:

I believe they are storks, about 3 feet tall, long pink legs, grey and white feathers, Long neck that curves half way with an orange long beak below the eyes and above beak has a red patch..

Habitat:

They are from Cambodia, This was at an open bird sanctuary next to a small wildlife zoo, they are wading in the ponds,lakes and water areas and are also on tree branches...tropical climates

Notes:

I was amazed to see an empty pond all of a sudden be invaded by these storks.
