Allied to the Maguari by the possession of the peculiar forked tail is the White-necked Stork (Dissoura Episcopus), which ranges over tropical Africa, the Indo-Chinese countries, and through the Indian and Malay peninsulas to Celebes. It is mainly black above, and on the breast the feathers are glossed with metallic green and purple, while the nape, neck, throat, and abdomen are white.
