Saddle billed stork

Saddle-Billed Stork Wikipedia article.

Quoting from the Wikipedia article:

It is spectacularly plumaged, identical in male and female when perched but the female shows much more white in the primaries in flight. The head, neck, back, wings, and tail are iridescent black, with the rest of the body and the primary flight feathers being white. Juveniles are browner grey in plumage. The massive bill is red with a black band and a yellow frontal shield (the “saddle”). The legs and feet are black with pink knees. On the chest is a bare red patch of skin, whose colour darkens during breeding season.

Apparently, it's also represented by the Hieroglyph, "Ba".
