The Beauty of the Yellow-Billed Stork

We saw hundreds of birds while we were in East Africa and many of them had amazing colors. One of the birds that we saw in several of the different parks that we visited was the Yellow-Billed Stork. It might not be as colorful as some of the other birds that we saw, but the yellow color on the bill contrasting with the red around the eyes gave him a very expressive look. Whenever we saw different birds, we tried to take several photographs of them so that we could capture them from several different angles. Most of the time on the safari was focused on the big animals, but the birds were equally amazing. We’re not sure if this is what people imagined when they talked about storks delivering babies, but they certainly exude a sense of pride.
