Stork nest

I tried to take a photo of a stork's nest. I couldn't get close enough since I was in the car but you can see the mother (or father) stork and two babies in the nest. I think storks are such cute birds. There are so many of them in the region where I live. I saw at least 20 nests during our car drive yesterday. Apparently storks use the same nest for many years and always return to the same nest after migrating.

I did not know there were many storks in your region. The only European countries where I have seen storks is the Portugal.

They look like big long legged birds but they are cute.

I hope that storks will not get electrocuted in their nest.

@tzwrites Yes. Storks has really a mind of their own.

wow, that is a peculiar sight! Stork with the nest on top of the pole, ain't it heavy? I hope that the little chicks will learn to fly soon before the storm comes in. Is it normal to see stork nest in your country?

Yes, they are very common and the nests usually don't get damaged in storms. I hope they will be safe.

i've never seen a stork, too, so thank you for sharing this picture. where else do storks build their nests, aside from electric posts? have stork eggs or baby storks ever been known to accidentally fall from those nests?

They usually build nests on chimneys and electrical poles. Some do fall but quite rarely.

@tzwrites are they there the whole year, or do they fly elsewhere when it gets cold?

My goodness, that is a big nest and you actually did a pretty good job of getting the photo from a car.

No wonder why they return to the same nest, it's huge and must have taken a while to be built! 20 nests is an impressive number too, I've only spotted herons in my area, no storks. They're all there where you live, perhaps.

I have seen storks but never see its nest. Thank you for sharing the photo. So they made a nest in electric pole. Hope they are safe.

It's wonderful that you have so many storks nesting in your area. It would be dreadful to think they were all disappearing.

I didn't know that about storks. Very interesting. We don't have them where I live. They might be more southern, not sure.
