Asian Open Billed Stork

DSC_0075

I saw it.
Slammed the brakes.
It saw me.
I went for the camera.
It became weary.
I got the camera ready.
It looked alert.
I shot.
It flew, but before it did, I got this snap!

Spotted this Asian Open Billed Stork enroute Vadhvana Bird Sanctuary in a field.

Did you know?

A stork can live 20 to 30 years.
Some storks are colony nesters; others only nest in pairs.
Storks can hiss, honk, croak, squeal and whistle. They also clatter their beaks.
