Hahahahahaha!!!!! An easy mistake. :D
Hahaha! No no, I totally get the connection :-) I was at Edinburgh Zoo for a wedding recently and afterwards, saw the flamingos there. Alongside them were nearly identical birds, but much smaller and with feathers of a more intense pink. Baby flamingos, right? Wrong. After I had excitedly, loudly announced my discovery of the chicks to the rest of the world, I read the information sign. Whilst I was tipsily enjoying these pretty flamingo-lets, the rest of the visitors were quietly and soberly looking at the collection of Egyptian Ibis...as my old work colleague would have said, "RTFM!" ( Read The F@#%ing Manual! )
What a fantastic memory to treasure. I've never seen a stork in its natural habitat. The closest I've come to it was pink flamingos in The Camargue. They're pretty similar ...... one's pink ..... one's black and white .... but ...... they both have long legs. :D
I saw my first stork, on his nest, in Copenhagen. I was on holiday with my parents and I was only 6. When I saw that gigantic, beautiful white bird, opening his wings, on the top of someone's chimney, I didn't believe that he was real. I thought that the stork - and Denmark - must be part of a fairy story! A wonderful, happy memory now.
I wonder how this nest looks now:
Haha, yes MD! Not much variation in the old interior design! Happy to see two beautiful storks on this nest today, though :-)
Ooops! These nests all look the same ...... :D
Sorry, wrong cam...
Where's the baby?
Looking hopeful but it's a bit late for this year ........ maybe next year we shall see chicks.
This nest looks a bit rough and ready. Hopefully any rain will drain away.

A miserable day ......
Rain Shadow ..... it was head-on to the camera ....... and it was going dark.
It might well have been the camera angle. When they sit head-on to the camera, sometimes you cannot see their dark feathers. (Unless it was one of their offspring from a previous year visiting, although I am not sure if storks normally behave like that.)
It looks like there are 3 birds ........ 2 black and white ones and a white one ....... unless it's the camera angle.
The storks have settled in nicely here. I hope we will see some babies soon.
WOW! It's made a world of difference.
It looks like they finally adjusted the brightness, a much clearer view now.
Hope springs eternal.
