Jabiru (Black-necked Stork)

Jabiru (Black-necked Stork)
The Jabiru isn't just a large stork, it's the only Australian stork. In Yellow Waters we saw a couple of them together, maybe a family. One of them caught himself a large fish, but instead of swallowing it instantly the stork walked away with the fish in the bill.
When we saw him last, he had made at least 150 m in the shallow water. It was hardly the season to feed some young, so we remained clueless what he was planning to do.
