Features:

The jabiru stork Senegal or Saddleback (Ephippiorhynchus senegalensis) is a species of bird in the stork family ciconiforme living in Africa. Similar to the white stork size, has a characteristic color in feathers and beak.

Customs, food and habitat:

It is found throughout tropical Africa, from Senegal east to Ethiopia and south to northern South Africa. It is absent from the extreme south and southwest of the continent.

It lives in rivers and freshwater lakes, wetlands and marshes, in open areas and wooded grasslands. The African jabiru has never been a common species by their need for large areas of suitable habitat. The African jabiru is easily altered by human activity, but the main threats are the drainage of wetlands and conversion of agricultural land in wilderness areas. In Kenya there are only six breeding sites Jabirus. Although this bird is legally protected and its population is stable, conservation in such a vast territory is difficult. Even the national parks and game reserves are home to very few breeding pairs.

Curiosities:

Stay cool in warm weather as light shade and is a serious problem for the Jabiru. To avoid overheating, pants and ruffle their feathers vigorously to separate the outer feathers of the body warmed by the sun. Adults fill the peak water regularly to refresh chickens or eggs. Even defecate on their legs to leave them covered with white feces.
