“Here comes the spectacularly plumaged saddle-billed stork
(Ephippiorhynchus senegalensis)…
a huge bird that regularly attains a height of 150 cm (59 in),
a length of 142 cm (56 in) and a 2.4–2.7 m (7.9–8.9 ft) wingspan.
It is a widespread species… in sub-Saharan Africa
from Sudan, Ethiopia and Kenya south
to South Africa, and in The Gambia, Senegal,
Côte d’Ivoire and Chad in west Africa.”
