Je reconnaît la poule d'eau avec son bec rouge.
Ray: Les volailles des marais sont communes à de nombreuses parties du monde, Martine, elles peuvent même être en France.

Those swamp fowl have very agreeable iridescences, leaving the storks open-beaked with admiration

Or words to that effect..
Ray: Swamp Fowl tend to be anti-social, Chris, so I was surprised to see them together and among the Storks.

Red beaks and red legs like our storks. I like the name open- beak storks.
Ray: I like that name, too, Philine.

Rich pickings for all, I should think.
Ray: The birds seemed quite at ease in this swampy area, Alan...there were thousands of storks and egrets off in the distance.

the leggy storks do hold my attention, Ray.
Ray: Very pleasant birds, Ayush, and useful to us rice farmers as they feed on the snails that feed on our young rice plants.
All friends together it seems.
Ray: All seemed harmonious, Brian.
The swamp fowl look interesting with their seeming iridescence and bright face marking.
Ray: Swamp Fowl are lovely birds, but are usually extremely solitary and human-shy, Mary. I believe we have the same species in Australia.
Lovely shots, Ray.
Ray: Thank you, Tom...from a short visit to a nearby Bird Sanctuary.
Those are some interesting looking birds!
Ray: Swamp Fowl are lovely birds, Elizabeth.
Nice to see sharing....a lesson we try to teach the grandchildren...sharing is caring....yeah right
Ray: Worth teaching, Bill.
