    Those are shoebill storks – and I think their given names are Phyllis and Herman.

    They are shoebill storks. I saw a photo of one last month and had to find out more about them.

    My guess wasn’t even close. :D I thought, they look kind of Dodo-like, so Condor maybe? I am NOT a bird expert at all.

    Shoebill storks, I think. This looks like a chatty pair, too.

    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.
