The Greater Adjutant (Leptoptilos dubius) is a member of the stork family, Ciconiidae. The Greater Adjutant Stork has adaptations that help them to be better scavengers. A bald head and neck, although it doesn’t make them look pretty, helps them to keep clean. The neck and head is the hardest part for a bird to reach when they preen, or clean, themselves. Having no feathers means there are less places for their scavenged food to get stuck.
