Black neck? You're having a laugh, aren't you?

What's in  a name? Nothing like  the truth when it comes to Black-necked Stork (Ephippiorhynchus asiaticus).

'Black neck? That's a laugh,' said Mrs Stork, in Tyto, t'other day.  'My Rhynky's got a gorgeous neck, I reckon.'

'Too right, Eph,' said he.   They're right, of course, my lovely Jabirus.
