It’s a stroke of luck to spot this gregarious bird; hence little is known about its behavior. The awe-inspiring morphological features make this bird unique and worth cherishing. This bird relishes swimming in well-vegetated waterways like mangroves, shaded rivers, and swamps. It is also a good climber owing to the half-webbed feet (lobed feet). It quickly hides in the bushes if it senses danger.
Aquatic invertebrates, snails, and small fish are among some of its favorite snacks. The nest is composed of sticks lined with some vegetation (making a thick pad) placed on the water. Moreover, habitat destruction and other human activities have pushed these birds to the brink of extinction.
