Family: Struthionidae The ostriches are flightless birds native to Africa.

They are the largest living species of bird and are distinctive in appearance, with a long neck and legs and the ability to run at high speeds.

Their feet are placed far back on the body, making them quite ungainly on land.

Family: Phoenicopteridae Flamingos are gregarious wading birds, usually 3 to 5 feet (0.9 to 1.5 m) tall, found in both the Western and Eastern Hemispheres. Their oddly shaped beaks are specially adapted to separate mud and silt from the food they consume and, uniquely, are used upside-down.

They have long broad wings with "fingered" wingtips and striking patterns in flight. Family: Rallidae Rallidae is a large family of small to medium-sized birds which includes the rails, crakes, coots, and gallinules.

Typically they inhabit dense vegetation in damp environments near lakes, swamps, or rivers.

Family: Hydrobatidae The storm-petrels are relatives of the petrels and are the smallest seabirds.

They feed on planktonic crustaceans and small fish picked from the surface, typically while hovering. Family: Ciconiidae Storks are large, long-legged, long-necked wading birds with long, stout bills.

Their plumage is somewhat permeable, like that of cormorants, and they spread their wings to dry after diving.

Family: Scopidae The hammerkop is a medium-sized bird with a long shaggy crest.
