Pairs of saddle-billed stork are sometimes seen in the Africa. Although widely distributed, they need large territories in which to feed and breed and their wetland habitats are shrinking elsewhere due to drainage for agriculture.

Males and females can be distinguished by their eyes – those of the females are yellow, while those of the male are brown.
