The larger stork chick is two days older, the younger ones were hatched on the same day. The probably unfertilized egg still stands on the edge of the nest.

Täna tõi emaslind Kati pesasse noore rästiku. Kõikide kurgede puhul on väiksemate roomajate püüdmine tavapärane.

Today female Kati brought a young viper to the nest. For all storks catching smaller reptiles is quite common.

In the video below the event can be seen, Kati has been foraging for food somewhere at the bank area of a water body. A number of frogs and the viper. What the chicks cannot manage goes by way of Kati’s beak back again into the craw.
