Caption: A flock of Yellow-billed storks (Mycteria ibis) in flight at Mana Pools in Zimbabwe. These birds, which are waders, are alternatively called wood storks or wood ibises. The V formation in flight greatly boosts the efficiency and range of flying birds, particularly over long migratory routes.
