The biggest stork of the world and symbol of the Pantanal the Tuiuiú or Jaburu Jabiru would mycteria whose sleepy figure, resting on a leg, is integrant part of the pantaneira landscape. Second bigger bird of Brazil (ema is the greater) with 2 meters and 60cm of spread and 1 meter of height, tuiuiú can weigh eight kilos - what certain difficulty confers it to fly. As the gaviões, it needs track to take off, but, when alçar flight, is nestled in an airflow and travels up to 30 km Of white plumage, dark and esguias legs, black head and peak and the red inconfundível papo. Tuiuiú is a bird conservative in the marriage - in its species it does not have exchange of couples. But he is the male who takes care of of the younglings, in the nests mounted in dry and high trees, while the female handle flight to pan food.

Great silhouette of the storks' nest. It is amazing to see how big and how high it is. A sight that we do not have the privilege of seeing in our part of the world. Do you know what kind of storks they are? How big is the nest in actuality? Some information would be most welcome. Thank you for posting, and a warm welcome to TN. : )
