Maribu stork Sometimes called the "undertaker bird," due to its shape from behind: cloak-like wings and back, skinny white legs, and sometimes, a large white mass of "hair." A massive bird, large specimens may reach a height of 150 cm, a weight of over 9 kg and a wingspan of 3.5 m. It shares the distinction of having the largest wingspan of any landbird with the Andean Condor. More typically, these birds measure 120– 140 cm, 225–285 cm across the wings, and weigh 4.5–8 kg.
