Storks and Stork-Bill

leave a comment »

I finally got around to processing the rest of the images from my trip to Cambodia last year. These two images were made at the Preah Sihanouk or Ream National Park, on the outskirts of Sihanoukville.

This first image is of a pair of Lesser Adjutant Storks, wading and feeding in the mud of the mangrove swamp (which covers a great deal of the park). These are not small birds. They’re about 4 feet (~1.2 m) tall, with wingspans of 6 to 7 feet (1.8 to 2.1 m).

This second image is of a Stork-Billed Kingfisher. About a foot (~30 cm) tall, this noisy bird has spectacularly-colored plumage and coloring. This one was sitting at the top of a (fish) net stake. It was…well…fishing.
