Open billed stork. Even when not munching on a snail the bill only closes on the tip

another African Openbill Stork Anastomus lamelligerus on the hunt
QuoteQuote:
BIOMETRICS:
Length: 80-94 cm
Weight: 1000-1300 g

DESCRIPTION:
Like the other member of the genus Anastomus, the Asian Openbill, the African Openbill has an unusual bill well adapted to the feeding behaviour of both species. These birds feed mainly on large aquatic snails of the genus Pila, and this type of bill is useful to extract the mollusc from the shell.

Hummer photographed in Costa Rica. No idea what species (many, many in Central America). It looks quite a bit like a female ruby-throat except for the curved bill and size. Scan.

I've been lucky enough to find wildlife in various locales

and if possible when I find animals in zoos, I like to post photos which gives the appearance that the animal may have been found in nature:
