Ciconia (Old World storks)

Wikipedia Abstract

Ciconia is a genus of birds in the stork family. Six of the seven living species occur in the Old World, but the maguari stork has a South American range. In addition, fossils suggest that Ciconia storks were somewhat more common in the tropical Americas in prehistoric times.These are large storks, typically 100 cm tall, with a 180 cm wingspan and a long thick bill.
