Stork stalk starts Jabberwonky


Could the birds be watching me? When all along I've thought myself the observer? Yesterday, near the coast, this Black-necked Stork (Ephippiorhynchus asiaticus) flew by near enough to straight over top of me. Today, almost 80km to west up the Herbert River Gorge, same bird, same slow flight over me. Any more of it and I'll be getting the  J-J-J-J-Ja-Ja-Jabber-Jabberoos.

It' such a great sight and wonderful capture. I'd be happy to have such encounters everyday!

I'll let the Jabiru eye-in-the-sky spy network know for you.

G'day Tony,
I think the bird is looking for its mate - archeopteryx! Great shot!

Thanks, mate. Think it's too young, or are you suggesting I look like a relic?
