Visiting the U Minh Thuong NP was an interesting experience because of traveling along the waterways in a long narrow boat (see previous uploads) but the drawback was the noise which scared all creatures living near the water.

Luckily a short walk before lunch in the forest got me quite excited with the sight of two adjutants. I could not believe my eyes!

“The Lesser Adjutant (Leptoptilos javanicus) is a large wading bird in the stork family Ciconiidae. Like other members of its genus, it has a bare neck and head. It is however more closely associated with wetland habitats where it is solitary and is less likely to scavenge than the related Greater Adjutant. It is a widespread species found from India through Southeast Asia to Java.

The Lesser Adjutant stalks around wetlands feeding mainly on fish, frogs, reptiles and large invertebrates. They rarely feed on carrion. They may also take small birds and rodents particularly during the breeding season. They are solitary except during the breeding season when they form loose colonies.... They are silent but have been noted to clatter their bill, hiss and moan at the nest.” (Wikipedia)
