The Asian Openbill is a white stork except for the black flight feathers. It has red legs and a dull yellow grey bill. The mandibles do not meet except at the tip and this gives rise to the name openbill. It is much duller in winter. It also uses thermals to soar. Best sighted at wetlands and rivers.
