The male came back to the empty nest every night since.
Today, a new female joined him. Let's wish them better luck !

How sad is this? The female away, the storklets taken out of the nest ... poor Stork :unsure: (Although this was surely the right solution)
When will the governments make the electric cables so safe that no birds die of it? This is a too frequent cause of death of big birds. :-(

Thank you for the link, Abigyl. It is good, that the male perhaps has found a new mate. I wish both all the best!

A feeding I would have liked, but not so easy to see; no running video. Maybe this:

It seems to me, they love this camera :mrgreen:
These parents are so loving, a bit like in the memory of Tiina and Tiiet :shake:

Just a pity that the camera is not so perfect,
but the pictures, which she makes for us: :thumbs:

Black swan, gorgeous pictures you have captured today. What lovely storklets! :loveshower: Thank you so much! :thumbs:
It’s wonderful to see these storklets so well. As you said, the parents are so careful and tenderly with this young. It's a joy to watch them. :D
Black swan wrote:All four seem to laugh, about what?
I haven’t experiences with Black Storks in such a case. But I know when White Tailed Eagles open their beaks for longer time, they are panting because of high temperatures. It helps to regulate their body temperature.
A look at the weather report for Hungary shows that there are really high temperatures, about 28 – 30 °C. So it’s perhaps likely that the Storks are panting.

I agree, Black swan. I’m often thinking of Tiina and the cosy nest she has built, - in vain. And I’m also thinking of Tiit, from whom we don’t know, what has happened to him. Let us hope, they are also well. :rolleyes:

Before bed time...

:wave: @ Michi, a big Thank You and of course you're right :thumbs:
If they have open beaks on the snapshots, always looks like they would laugh.
That makes them so cute to look at. It was only meant as a fun.

:hi: Michi!

Good Morning! Parents must have brought a lot of moss and other nest materials; sleeping Storklets not want to get up

But now: Daddy preens :mrgreen:

Hello all together! :wave:
Hello black swan :hi: The sleeping young storks are always so cute when they are lying on their side!

I had the same idea with the wings :rolleyes:

.
But I have a question for long time: what do you all think about their eyes? I keep being worried about them. :unsure:
Most of the time they look as if they were blind! :shock:
Don't you have the same impression???
(The eyes of Tiit and Tiina's childs used to be completely different)
