Open-bill Stork Breeding Colony

Returning from a visit to the Liuwa plain in western Zambia in May 2009 part of the journey was made by boat along the Zambesi as far as Mongu. On the way we made a detour into the reed beds in a backwater off the main river channel to view a breeding colony of open-bill storks. The number of birds was truly impressive, and in view of the relative remoteness and inaccessibility of the site it was a rare opportunity to observe it at such close quarters.

Like a scene from a dream.

It's surreal, that such a sight actually existed for a few brief moments.

It's dramatic without seeking to to stand out.

Truly remarkable!

Thank you for posting this.
