Greater-adjutant-standing-on-branch.jpg

A huge stork species, the greater adjutant (Leptoptilos dubius) has a naked pink head, a very thick yellow bill and a low-hanging neck pouch. The neck ruff is white and, other than the pale grey leading edge of each wing, the rest of the greater adjutant’s body is dark grey. Juveniles have a narrower bill, thicker down on the head and neck and entirely dark wings. The greater adjutant is a huge stork named for its slow, measured gait, which resembles that of a military adjutant, or officer. The greater adjutant is found only in two small, separate breeding populations in India and Cambodia. The diet of the greater adjutant consists of a range of animal species, and it will even take injured ducks. The greater adjutant often eats carrion and can swallow and digest large bones.
