Storks are my favourite birds in the summer so I love observing them. The nest of storks there is 5 kilometres from my summer house. The nest is located on the tree next to the road.
White Stork is very popular bird in Poland. Over 23% of world population (52,000 pairs) of this bird live here in Spring and Summer. Storks are wandering birds and just before Winter they fly away to hotter countries in Africa.
Storks made strong and durable nests (in Poland mainly on electric poles). where they are coming back every year. There are known nests which are used for 400 years!!
|The storks family consist of parents and two children.|
|Storks are huge birds. They have near 200 cm (79 in) wingspan and weight about 4 kg. They are very useful. because they feed with small field pests like mouses, voles and moles. Storks eat also small snakes, lizards, frogs and even small rabbits.|
|In Poland storks are deeply rooted in the culture. In the old religion it was believed, that stork takes souls to the paradise. Generally storks were believed to be birds which brings luck. Today Poles says, that storks bring children.|
