We're delighted to have a strong population of strange-tailed tyrants at the reserve. So much so that we've adopted these beautiful and endangered birds as the symbol of the Trust
The American Woodstork usually arrives in the Ibera Marshes in spring and leaves at the end of summer. It is usually found in or near water in a flock of about 4-20.
It is smaller than the Maguari Stork at about 65cm with predominantly white feathers and black remiges and tail. Its head is dark although can be pinkish in some lights, and the bill is usually pale.
