More about the black stork

27 May 2016

 

When foraging, a black stork walks around slowly in shallow water while stabbing at prey with the sharply pointed bill. It finds prey visually or probes into water and grabs the prey with a rapid forward lunge. It may shade the water with its wings at regular intervals to be able to see better under the water, before darting forward and seizing its prey. The diet mainly consists of fishes that are usually from 120 to 180 mm, but occasionally up to 300 mm, long but it also eats frogs and toads, tadpoles, small mammals, nestling birds, reptiles such as small tortoises, large insects, caterpillars and freshwater snails...
