The Black Stork is a species of stork that breeds in central and eastern parts of Europe. Strongly migratory, they winter in parts of Africa and India.
They feed on fish, amphibians and insects which they find by foraging in wetlands.
Black Storks are solitary and wary, unlike its cousin, the more gregarious White Stork. They are glossy irisdescent black with white bellies and bright orange-red beaks and legs.
