A large stork with a completely bare head and neck ideal for its scavenging habits. The adult’s face is red and the neck is yellow while the juvenile has a brownish head and a white, thinly-feathered neck. The upperparts are all dark while the underparts are mostly white. In flight, note the broad wings with distinctive white “armpits” and tucked in neck. Similar to the Greater Adjutant, but the Greater Adjutant is larger overall with a larger bill, appears more hunched, and has off-white patches on the upperwings. Often found in shallow marshes, fields, and swamps.
