Shoebill bird...   Knock Knock - Off Topic

I thought this was really interesting, such a large bird, but she rubs her head against the cage cleaning guy's head several times. And the noise he makes when she clacks his bills together is interesting too.

That’s a real bird? I’ve never heard of it before.

Oh, a stork. I don’t think we have them here. Never seen one.

Storks, pelicans, shoebills, they all have a large bill and usually use it to catch fish in their large beaks/bills and then swallow them whole. I would imagine cranes too, but their bills aren't that large.

I’d never heard that name, but it’s fitting.

It's only native habitat is Africa, but they do have a few zoos around the world that keep them. So unless you live in an area near where they are kept, your probably won't hear much about them.
