Hi, Could you ID this stork I saw in the Kruger Park last December. I know the two birds on each side are Woolly-necked Storks but I can't positively ID the bird in the middle.

I thought that it might be a young Woolly-necked stork but it didn't seem to fit the description in Newman's. Then I thought it might be a scruffy looking Black stork, however I am sure you guru's will be able to ID it.
Thanks bondm UK

Looks like a big woollynecked chick.

Hi All,

Many thanks for your help in IDing the stork. I think I will go along with the Black stork.

Thanks again
