We’re all familiar with that bird that delivers bundles of joy to one’s home but here are some things about these birds you probably don’t know.

Storks are large wading birds with long bills that are found on all continents except Antarctica. They are mostly found in warm, dry climates. Their habitat includes wetlands, grasslands and tropical forests.

A group of Storks is called a mustering.

The Stork’s graceful long neck is well suited for catching prey.

The average lifespan of a Stork is 30–40 years.

The smallest Stork is the Hammerkop Stork at 61cm (2ft).

Storks communicate by hisses, honks, croaks, squeals, whistles and clapping their bill.

Stork chicks can eat up to sixty percent of their own body weight per day.

The Marabou Stork is a scavenger. It will eat just about any type of animal whether dead or alive.

The population of the White Stork has declined steadily over the last half century.

A Stork’s long legs help it to wade in deep water.

Storks will often share their breeding grounds with many other species.

The Marabou Stork has distinct features that include an almost bald head, spotted, scab encrusted head. The bare skin of its head and neck is pink to magenta in colour.

Young Storks have darker plumage than adults.

Most species of Storks are migratory but some Storks are colony nesters; others only nest in pairs. They are good parents and the female usually lays 3–5 eggs.

Most Storks reach sexual maturity around the age of four years.

Northern Europeans once encouraged Storks to nest on their homes hoping they would bring fertility and prosperity.

The Jabiru is also called the black–necked Stork and has coral coloured legs.

The European and Asian white Stork winters in Africa.
