The Jabiru is a large stork found in the Americas from Mexico to Argentina, except west of the Andes. It is most common in the Pantanal region of Brazil and the Eastern Chaco region of Paraguay. It is the only member of the genus ''Jabiru''. The name comes from a Tupi–Guaraní language and means "swollen neck".
