Marabou Stork at Milwaukee County Zoo
The Marabou Stork is sometimes called the "undertaker bird" due to its shape from behind: cloak-like wings and back & skinny white legs.

Fantastic capture...love the feather detail!
Nice capture of this interesting fellow.
A face only a mother could love. Great shot, and I also related to Arctangent's comments. Well done Darlene.
It does have gorgeous feathers, though! Super capture!
Interesting. I wonder how many women, back when real stork feathers were used, would have adorned themselves in marabou feathers if they had known how ugly the actual bird source of them was, and that the birds dined on carrion.
very good capture!!
Super capture...love the feather detail and pose!
