About the Painted Stork
Also known as: Painted Wood Stork
Painted Stork
The Painted Stork is a species of stork that is found in wetlands across much of India and parts of southeast Asia. They are non-migratory, remaining on territory year-round.

Painted Storks have heavy yellow beaks with a downward curve that resembles the beak of an ibis. They have pink wing feathers (tertials) that hang over their rump. These feathers give them their common name.

Painted Storks feed on small fish. They hunt by sweeping their partially opened beaks through shallow water; prey is detected by touch.
