Stork toby jug produced by Longpark Pottery of Torquay, England, circa 1910. Storks are large, long-legged, long-necked wading birds with long, stout bills. They belong to the family called Ciconiidae. Storks dwell in many regions and tend to live in drier habitats than the closely related herons, spoonbills and ibises. Bill-clattering is an important mode of communication at the nest. Many species are migratory. The stork's wings sweep upward to form the handle of the jug.
