Painted stork. This beautiful bird. It is considered a very rare non breeding visitor. Enjoy it (them at times) while they are here. Thanks to a friend who enlightened me about the name of this bird, otherwise I would have confused it with milky stork. #paintedstork#stork

The first time I saw a #paintedstork was on a wonder-walk a few years back and it was in captivity, but I was enchanted by its bright pink feathers like splashes of watercolor on canvas. ✨🎨✨ This last December on a large lake in Cambodia, we climbed up into a treehouse and saw scores of them at their natural habitat - at the biggest sanctuary of water birds in South East Asia, from a platform 100 ft up in the air. 😱 It was an experience like no other, a real -life #davidattenborough -style National Geographic stake out.

Checking out the wetlands of Keoladeo Nationalpark in Rajasthan, India. The former duck-hunting reserve of the Maharajas is an important bird area today, with over 360 bird species including some rare winter guests like the rare Siberian crane. In the back you can see the Painted Stork (Mycteria leucocephala) colony. #keoladeonationalpark#rajasthan
