An exception to this is the reasonable study detail on the seasonal habitat requirements and migratory patterns of the Proboscis Monkey (1) and to a lesser extent for the Crocodile species (Frazier, 1994, 2000), Storm's Stork (Ciconia stormii) and Lesser Adjutant Stork (Leptoptilos javanicus).
In most stork species, males establish themselves on a potential nest site at the start of the breeding season; in Anastomus, Mycteria, and Leptoptilos species the unmated males perform advertising display(s): Display Preening (Mycteria spp.
In species of Mycteria, Anastomus, and Leptoptilos, the approaching female usually performs a display, presumably to appease the male.

Kahl grouped the "giant" storks (Leptoptilos, Jabiru, and Ephippiorhynchus) together in the tribe Leptoptilini, based on morphological similarities, and he placed the Ciconia species in a separate tribe, the Ciconiini.
These two displays are common and unique to Anastomus, Leptoptilos, and Mycteria species.
The pairing of the genera Leptoptilos and Mycteria is found in one-half of the most-parsimonious trees obtained from analysis of the behavioral data matrix, and this pairing is supported by two characters: presence of the Balancing Posture (character 1) and drooping of the undertail coverts in the Snap Display (character 16).
Interestingly, five of the six displays included in the early courtship category (all except Head-shaking Crouch) are performed exclusively by species in the genera Mycteria, Leptoptilos, or Anastomus.
Surprisingly the vulnerable Lesser Adjutant Leptoptilos javanicus was unknown from DSNP until breeding was reported in 1995 (8+ nests) and 1996 from the Nung forest, where they had not been breeding for the last thirty years (Dennis et at.
