I feel rather bold in saying this as I am a newcomer to this list, but re
the  name of Black-necked Stork, it is so incorrect as a descriptive name.
Black indeed! What about all those beautiful iridescent colours?  This
bird's neck is not black. But I am speaking as one who loves the amazing
beauty of birds, not as a scientist.
