Shoebill Stork chick

Shoebill Stork: Mabamba Swamp, Entebbe, Uganda, August 2022 — This is a very rare bird. Shoebill Storks are rare and endangered through their whole range, there are only small concentrations around Lake Victoria, and in a few of the National Parks…they only nest every 5 years…they only lay two eggs…and they only raise one chick. So to see a chick is pretty special. We were within 30 feet of this one. Sony Rx10iv at 600mm. Program mode with my custom birds and wildlife modifications. ISO 160 @ f4 @ 1/500th.
