The Jabiru Storks are the tallest among all flying birds. They are known to have a very wide wingspan too. Given that these birds feed on aquatic animals, they are mostly seen in wetlands. Among all the forests and jungles around the world, they are most commonly seen in the Pantanal. Not a lot of birds like to be around Jabiru Storks too. This is because of the fact that they are known to be opportunists and will most likely eat them if any kinds of opportunities arise.
