Bharatpur - Jan 2012

The Woolly-necked Stork or White necked stork (Ciconia episcopus) is a large wading bird in the stork family Ciconiidae. It can also be known as theEspiscopos.
It is a widespread tropical species which breeds in Africa, and also in Asia from India to Indonesia. It is a resident breeder in wetlands with trees. The large stick nest is built in a forest tree, and 2-5 eggs form the typical clutch. This stork is usually silent, but indulges in mutual bill-clattering when adults meet at the nest.
