Stork family

My daughter helped me to find a stork family near Berlin (Nudow): mother and father caring for two young storks. They are coming back since 2004 every year – and have mostly three babies …

  2. So they use the same nest over and over again? Don’t other birds also want to use the nest?

  10. Melanie, USA, half Cherokee half German, comments on my flickr photo stream:
    “Love it!
    I have been following a mated pair of Bald Eagles in Decorah, Iowa, US, for the last two years, on live webcams. The night infra-red light is broken, so now I can only see them during the daytime, but it has been fascinating. I have watched them raise two sets of three babies from eggs to the ‘kids’ leaving on their own. The three ‘youngsters’ are now flying, so they’re not around in camera view much, now. The Mom & Dad will start getting the nest ready, again, in about late November…”

      for your interesting facts about the storks population in Switzerland!
      “The white stork went extinct in Switzerland in 1950. Due to the reintroduction project by Max Bloesch and Storch Schweiz the population has increased again to more than 200 breeding pairs. Will this increase continue, or will the population start to decline again?…”

    read more there for example:
    “The white stork population has been accurately surveyed for more than 100 years. The nestlings are, with few exceptions, systematically marked with rings. Ring resightings and ring recoveries from Switzerland and abroad give valuable information on behaviour, life histories, mortality causes, age structure, migratory flyways as well as on stopover and wintering sites. These data are being analysed with modern statistical methods. Similar data are available from other countries, which allows for interesting comparisons…”
