Storks on the Hunt

Avalus is doing some fieldwork with his new camera and he’s spied this flock of storks. He tells me that they’ve been around for awhile and hints that we may see them again.

    The young are in the nests, high above the ground. The nests usually are whithin villages/small towns.

    Ha! Besides of putting one needless ‘h’ into my previous comment, I didn’t even think about the saying that storks deliver the babies :)

    Very elegant birds -- I remember seeing some on my trips to Germany. Sadly, there are no equivalents where I live.

    It’s wonderful how storks have made a comeback here. I remember as a kid they were zoo attractions. At about that time the Alsace started to develop as a “quaint tourist region” with storks being their symbol animal. And the storks moved over.
    Near me there’s an entire ecological landscaping project that started with a lost stork. I think I should write about it one day.

    Do they still put cartwheels on roofs to get storks to nest?

    Finland is a marginal place for storks, but Estonian storks do get lost once in a while and end up here and a few have nested in the southwest.
