Many thanks to Greg Clancy for his illuminating notes regarding the =
Black-necked Stork and Latham. I had always wondered who was resposible 
for doing this regal species the terrible injustice of naming it as =
such. Latham must have had good reason for doing so. As I guide 
overseas =
visitors, quite often they are taken aback with the somewhat cheap =
(colour) reference to this iconic bird that sports an irridecense not =
readily encountered in any other species. And I feel a little bit 
guilty =
about because I do not have a reasonable answer for them....even now.
