Storks

Storks are large, long-legged, long-necked wading birds with long, stout bills. Storks dwell in many regions and tend to live in drier habitats than the closely related herons, spoonbills and ibises; they also lack the powder down that those groups use to clean off fish slime. Bill-clattering is an important mode of communication at the nest. Many species are migratory. Most storks eat frogs, fish, insects, earthworms, small birds and small mammals. There are 19 living species of storks in six genera.

Group Details

Storks’ nests are often very large and may be used for many years. Some nests have been known to grow to over two meters (six feet) in diameter and about three meters (10 feet) in depth. All storks were once thought to be monogamous, but this is only partially true. Some species may change mates after migrations, and may migrate without a mate.

Storks’ large size, serial monogamy, and faithfulness to an established nesting site contribute to their prominence in mythology and culture.
