Painted Stork Found in Guizhou

Not long ago, people found 13 painted storks, or Mycteria leucocephala, in the Guizhou

Caohai National Nature Conservation Zone. Scientists have confirmed that the birds

discovered in the zone are a rare species that has not been reported for more than 50


With a length of 93-102cm, and a weight of 2-3.5kg, the painted stork in beautiful

feathers has a thick and long bright yellow bill with a slightly inclined tip, making it different

from other storks. As a migrant bird, the painted stork used to live in the coastal areas of

Hebei, Shanghai, Jiangsu, Fujian, Guangdong, Hainan, Sichuan, Yunnan, Tibet, and the

lower reach of the Yangtze River. A painted stork usually can live as long as 28 years.
