Marabou Stork

A Maribou Stork was confiscated from a seller in the market and brought to Rumangabo. When the stork is stable, it will be returned to the central sector where it most likely came from. If you haven’t seen one of these birds up close, it is quite the experience. The Marabou stork is not a regular visitor to the Mountain Gorilla sector of Virunga National Park, they usually live in the savanna and marsh areas around the lake.
The bird looks in bad shape, but that is actually the way a marabou stork is supposed to look, they are not attractive birds………
