Thread subject: Storks in Germany.
Name Date Message
Marie 08/04/05 05:11 pm Even though these two lovely white storks lost three of their hatchlings in MAY and the forth egg was ditched out of the nest later as it was infertile, these two continued to display mating behaviours, pair bonding and nest building throughout the rest of the breeding season. Apparently the adults are rendered infertile by Nature after a certain time in May so that young that might have hatched from a second clutch of eggs would not perish. There just wouldn't have been enough time for the young to mature in time for their arduous journey/migration to Africa in late August.
Although it is almost dark in Germany now, I could clearly see the outline of this lovely pair of storks together in the nest. Too bad this happened for them.
AnneW 08/04/05 05:51 pm They are lovely birds, and on every chimney in some European countries. Do you have them in the States?.
Nancy L 08/04/05 09:43 pm None that I know of.
Marie 08/05/05 01:04 am None in Canada either....
Closest birds maybe the crane family......
