    This is a shoebill. Cos the bill… looks like a shoe… see? From Wiki:

    The shoebill (Balaeniceps rex) also known as whalehead or shoe-billed stork, is a very large stork-like bird. […] The shoebill is noted for its slow movements and tendency to remain still for long periods, resulting in repeated descriptions of the species as “statue-like”. […] The shoebill is normally silent, but they perform bill-clattering displays at the nest. When engaging in these displays, adult birds have also been noted to utter a cow-like moo as well as high-pitched whines.
