Large white stork with a yellow bill and reddish face and legs. Extensive black on the wings and tail only prominent in flight; a little of this black edging on the wings occasionally visible when the bird is foraging. Inhabits coastal mangroves, marshes, and mudflats; very rare far inland. Painted Stork is fairly similar but has multiple small dark spots on the wings which are easily visible on a perched bird; hybrids usually have scattered black spots as well. Rather uncommon and declining; reintroduced in parts of Singapore and Malaysia.
