EDITORS COMMENTS
This exquisite watercolour and pencil illustration by the renowned ornithological artist, Claude Gibney Finch-Davies, captures the distinctive features of the Anastomus lamelligerus, or African Openbill Stork. Belonging to the Ciconiidae family within the order Ciconiiformes, this bird is a resident of the African continent and can be found primarily in marshes and wetlands. The African Openbill Stork is easily recognizable by its long, curved, and distinctive open bill, which is used to probe for food in the mud. Its neck is long and slender, allowing it to reach deep into the water to capture its prey, which includes fish, amphibians, and crustaceans. The bird's body is covered in a mix of brown and white feathers, with a white head and neck, and a black bill and legs. The plumage of the African Openbill Stork is adorned with fine, streaked patterns, adding to its intricate anatomy. Finch-Davies' illustration masterfully highlights the intricacies of the African Openbill Stork's anatomy, from the delicate feathers on its wings to the subtle details of its beak and legs. The artist's use of watercolour and pencil creates a sense of depth and texture, bringing the bird to life in a way that a photograph cannot. As a leading figure in the field of ornithology, Finch-Davies' work continues to inspire and educate us about the natural world. This illustration of the African Openbill Stork is a testament to his skill and dedication to capturing the beauty and complexity of birds in all their glory.
