About the Abdim's Stork
Also known as: White-bellied Stork
Of the world's 19 species of stork, the Abdim's Stork is the smallest, measuring just 29 inches in height. Besides the diminutive size, Abdim's Storks can be recognized by their iridescent black body plumage, red knees, and, in breeding season, blue facial skin under the eyes and behind the beak.
Also known as the White-bellied Stork, the familiar name Abdim's Stork honors Bey El-Arnaut Abdim, past Governor of Wadi Halfa.
