Ps .... I see you already knew about it. :D
Rain Shadow ... thanks. We used to have a kestrel cam. We were able to watch the birds from courtship to egg-laying, hatching and then see the youngsters fly away. I sat up for the whole night one time .... just to see the last one fly away. He'd been too frightened to leave .... sitting in the opening and then dropping back. I think this is the camera I miss the most. There are other links on it that are good but nothing as good as the kestrel cam.
Judging by the stills, it looks like the storks have returned.
Looks quite windy today.
I think I read that they mate for life. Poor things. LOL!!!!!!!
They're obviously taking their "for better or for worse" vow very seriously, lol.
LOL....he's acting like she said "no, i have a headache"!!!
They look married ...... standing well apart!
Mira .... I remember putting that link on the other stork cam. LOL
Thanks MD. It's rather weird ... maybe their habits are evolving due to climate change (?) The Wikipedia article states that they migrate between Europe and Africa or the Indian sub-continent and leave in August/September, arriving back in Europe around late March/April ... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White_stork These birds obviously didn't get the memo, lol. ;)
Hi Mira .... I havent gone back through the comments on this cam
but I know the storks didn't hibernate at all.
I looked up Hurricane Ridge ..... what a beautiful place.
Storks still here ... I'm surprised they haven't migrated yet.
Amazing that all of that came out of little eggs. :))
Aren't we all???? LOL!
Getting bigger every day.
They're lovely! :)
These babes are growing quickly.
Both adults are there at the moment.
Growing up fast!
Such spindly legs and knobbly knees ...... but yes ..... cute. :))
