The Hangout


     The saddle-billed stork lives in tropical regions of Africa, ranging from south of the Sahara, and up to northeastern Sudan. In this region the saddle-billed stork will live in the open country, close to water, in the wetlands and in semi-arid areas. The main factor that determines where the saddle-billed stork will live is the quantity of fish (the more fish the better) and also the amount of large trees and cliffs for the saddle-billed stork to build a nest on. Nest tend to be 20-30M off the ground and are made out of large sticks, on tree platforms or even on the face of a cliff if the location is more suitable for living conditions.
