The Marabou Stork from sub-Saharan Africa is a strange-looking bird with a mostly bare face and head like a vulture since it scavenges carrion as well as live prey. It is nearly 5 feet high with a massive wingspan over over 11 feet, the second largest of land birds. It also has a monstrous bill and a strange pink throat sack. Male and female have a similar appearance.
The Marabou Stork, sometimes called the African Adjutant, is related to the similar-looking Asian Adjutant Storks (Greater and Lesser).
Sort of endearing -- reminiscent of someone you know
