Milky stork at The National Zoo

Milky storks can be found in the same habitat as the white flamingo. As you walk around the zoo, you can easily get clear view of them as they spend most of their time resting rather than food searching.

In contrast to flamingos which mingle just around the lake area, storks like to rest on higher ground including trees and buildings. If you are lucky, you can get bird droppings on your head while photographing them.

Storks are social animal. They 'congregate' in large number even when doing nothing

 but there are lone-ranger who prefer to mind only his own business

like him

and like him (the bay-watcher)

beware of byproduct from their meeting

"I'm no stork. I'm just a passer by"
