About the Saddle-billed Stork

The Saddle-billed Stork is a very large species of stork found in parts of sub-Saharan Africa. They live in wetland habitats and breed in tropical lowland habitat. The build stick nests in trees.

Saddle-billed Storks feed on a variety of wetland prey items, including small reptiles, fish, frogs, and crabs.

Saddle-billed Storks have a striking plumage of iridescent black on the back, wings, tail, head and neck, with contrasting bright white elsewhere. They are named for their spectacular large bills which are red with a black band and a saddle-shaped yellow shield. Their legs are grey with pink feet and hocks.
