A Lesser Adjutant, currently on the verge of extinction in Bangladesh, perching itself on a bare tree trunk. From the stork family, this gentle bird’s name in Bangladesh -- Madantaak -- comes from its lack of cleverness and a bald spot on its head. It is known to live mostly around wetlands and wooded areas as it feeds mostly on fish, frogs, other reptiles and small mammals. PHOTO: HABIBUR RAHMAN
