        Yellow Billed Storks | Gorongosa Park: Rebirth of Paradise

        Learn about yellow billed storks in this clip from Gorongosa Park: Rebirth of Paradise. Bob mounts a boating expedition to explore the park at this special time of year, dodging aggressive hippos and lurking crocs. He discovers a huge nesting colony of water birds that proves to be one of the greatest birding spectacles in Africa. He manages to climb one of the nesting trees and spends weeks going up and down each day hoping to film the stork eggs hatching. His herculean efforts are rewarded when he films the magic moment a tiny little chick breaks out of the egg and enters the world. The new chicks' appetites seem insatiable and their parents are soon spending every waking hour bringing back fish to keep them quiet. In just a few weeks, the chicks go from fluffy little bundles to almost full-grown birds. They must muster the courage to take that first scary jump into the unknown and get on with their lives.
