The stork is a family of wading birds native to many parts of the world including the Americas, Europe, Asia and Africa. They are large, with ong legs and large bills. Most storks live in wetlands or near water where they can eat fish, amphibians, small reptiles, shellfish and insects. Their long legs allow them to take long strides and wade into deep water or tall grasses and reeds in search of food. Their long neck allows them to stretch out to capture their prey. When flying, storks are often seen soaring on wind currents with their legs dangling behind them. Most storks build nests in trees, although some are built on cliffs. Their nests are often very large measuring up to six feet in diameter and ten feet deep. Play the following videos to learn more about the stork.
