- Species: ZipcodeZoo has pages for 14 species and subspecies in the Subfamily Ciconiinae.
The openbill storks or openbills are two species of stork (family Ciconiidae) in the genus Anastomus. They are large wading birds characterized by large bills, the mandibles of which do not meet except at the tip. This feature develops only in the adults. The two species of openbill storks are: [more]
Ephippiorhynchus is a small genus of storks. It contains two living species only, very large birds more than 140 cm tall with a 230?270 cm wingspan. Both are mainly black and white, with huge colorful, mainly red and black bills. The sexes of these species are similarly plumaged, but differ in eye color. The members of this genus are sometimes called "jabirus", but this properly refers to a close relative from Latin America. [more]
The Jabiru ( or /'d??b?ru?/; Latin: Jabiru mycteria) is a large stork found in the Americas from Mexico to Argentina, except west of the Andes. It is most common in the Pantanal region of Brazil and the Eastern Chaco region of Paraguay. It is the only member of the genus Jabiru. The name comes from a Tupi?Guaran? language and means "swollen neck". [more]
Mycteria is a genus of large tropical storks with representatives in the Americas, east Africa and southern and southeastern Asia. Two species have "ibis" in their scientific or old common names, but they are not related to these birds and simply look more similar to an ibis than do other storks. [more]
At least 8 species and subspecies belong to the Genus Mycteria.
