Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Immense and imposing undertaker of a stork with a bare head and neck, pale eyes, and dark gray wings. Overlaps in some areas with similar but smaller Lesser Adjutant; note pale wing panel, paler heavier bill, prominent white neck ruff, and when in flight, grayer and less contrasting underwing. Forages in expansive wetlands and grasslands, as well as near garbage dumps; generally prefers drier habitat than Lesser Adjutant where the two overlap.
