The Jabiru is a large stork found in the Americas from Mexico to Argentina, except west of the Andes. The name comes from a Tupi–Guaraní language and means "swollen neck".
It has the second largest wingspan, after the Andean Condor. The adult Jabiru can weigh 4.3–9 kg (9.5–20 lb) and large males may stand as tall as 1.53 m (5.0 ft). - - That is one large bird!!
