A Bird Called Shoebill

The shoebills are related to storks and are also called Whaleheads. Their home is in east Africa and they’re among the largest birds in the world. These birds eat big fish and things like Nile monitor lizards, snakes, and baby crocodiles. They have been around for a long time and have shown up in the artwork of ancient Egyptians. One odd thing this bird does is that it makes machine-gun sounds otherwise it is silent. The shoebill makes the loud dreadful noise when it is around the nest or when it is greeting another bird.
