Asian Openbill- taken 21/01/2020 from the Moo Baan across the road from where I live. For anyone living outside Thailand, a moo baan is a gated housing community, complete with security guards and various facilities, in this case a small lake!
A relatively small stork species with a grayish to white body and black wings and tail with a hint of gloss. The Asian Openbill gets its name from a distinctive gap in the dull grayish yellow bill. Note the pinkish legs. Asian Openbills inhabit wetland habitats including shallow marshes, flooded agricultural fields, and lakes. From a distance they could be confused with herons, but they can be clearly distinguished from herons by their feeding habits—wading slowly through shallow water.
All the images here were taken with the Canon Eos M with 55-250mm stm lens for the Asian Hornbill, and the Tamron 10-24mm wide angle lens and eos to efm adaptor for the lake pictures.
