Yes :nod:
Very cute and goofy. It's a pity that there is no nest in the sight of the cam. And now I think it's too late for an egg. The chicks are really cuuuuute :loveshower:

Hi all :wave:

I won't be "here" for the next 2 weeks. The little BS will be born meanwhile: if it is the same time that last year, the first one will hatch on the 24th April. The cam will be turned to the nest on the 21st in the evening (most probably) and will stay there...

Hope everything will go well

Is it my imagination - or dirt on the eggs - or is it time for them to start pipping? :D

The other stork flew in - so the eggs are well looked after :D

This is so exiting! Thank you for taking some pictures from this nest from now on, thanks already in before hand!! :rolleyes: I'm so sorry I can't this spring take so many pics as before.. These faraway Black storks I like them so much, and the place where the nest is, is gorgeous, with one word.

I'll follow you, dear BSs there in Portas de Rodao, anyway you are relatives to all BS in the world, to our Estonian BSs too! Good luck! :bow:

:loveshower: Now there are four chicks! The fourth one seems to be very well, it fell down and the one of the siblings put her back his/her head, but the smallest stood up very soon! I believe the chicks were feeded for ten minutes ago!

At 12:00, three of them sleeping head to head and the fourth one is there on the back of the others. Then it too decided to put the head in the same place.
