My Marabou Stork Story

My Marabou Stork Story that made me stop seeing them as the ugliest birds in our planet.

It was a bright and sunny Sunday afternoon. I was with company of one of my very best friends. Who happen to be one of the best birder.

As usual, we would always explore birds and other species in the surroundings we found ourselves in. We were both wildlife students and always had something to discuss regarding nature and human impact.

Here is my Marabou stork story

So this Sunday, we passed by a muster of storks and I commented about their ugliness. And my birder friend had a perfect humbling answer for me. He took deep breaths and asked me a question, “Do you know what comes to the mind of those marabou storks when they look at you? ‘.

I remained silent and looked at him with a grin, so he offered an answer. “They are wondering, why is she that short. She is a very small human being ‘ I laughed and tried to defend myself . I didn’t win that argument so i had to apologize to the “‘beautiful’ Marabou Stork.


When in company of a birder, be very careful how you describe birds.

It happened again

Few years later, I had another encounter with these amazing birds.

I was parctipating in a game count for the Nairobi National Park. The block assigned to us had a huge muster of storks. They were all over that place, both on the ground and up the trees within that point.

One of the people whom we were taking part with in the exercise, did exactly what I did. Commented about their appearance.

He is birder too and he seems not to care much on the comment. He easily described it as many people do. By stating that, God made all birds beautiful and all their ugliness, He gave it to the Marabou stork.

I remained silent for a minute and refreshed my memory. Tried to support the other qualities of these storms. But instead, they laughed at me and agreed that for sure, Marabou stork are the ugliest birds.
