Saddle-billed Storks
This is one of the tallest species of all the storks, standing, up to 58 inches high. Storks differ from other birds in that they have no muscles in their voice boxes. They communicate by rattling their bills. They are all strong flyers and alternately flap and glide across the sky. Fossil records date storks back some 50 million years, making them a very ancient group of birds. They are usually seen singly or in pairs near open water.
