I continued my bike ride and saw where the stork landed. A good day for him. I hope he found a lot of food :2thumbsup:

Yes, someone has been watching and informing me. It was fledging and I hope it has arrived well in its winter area!

Oh, very nice photos/shots, Liz :2thumbsup: . Beautiful stork family. I am surprised that the nest is near Berlin :2thumbsup: (we have no storks around Prague I think). Thanks for sharing with us. I remember that you wrote last year about the late hatched storklet from there.
Enjoy your holiday :wave:

Sue, thank you!

The nest is in Waßmannsdorf. A small village near Berlin. I live I on the southern outskirts of Berlin. I see buzzard, red kite, goshhawk, heron, kestrels and much more. You just have to keep your eyes open. :laugh: Buzzard and herons breed where I live. It is a small forest area. Berlin is a green town. still! Too many people are coming and want to live here. For this nature is destroyed. This is a pity.

I've found three pictures more

These are also very nice shots of moving storks and the place with the nest is really picturesque :2thumbsup: . ... So you must have a very pleasant place for living :laugh: ... I live in Prague - but at least very close to a large park with many birds (mostly water birds). However storks are not closer than 40-50 km from here.
Liz, thanks for sharing :wave:

A bird has just landed in the living room, my husband said that it was a swift that could not start alone and put it on the window sill, where he has been sitting for 15 minutes ...My husband says he has no strength left, he will die :cry:

My husband put him on the balcony tonight, with wet grass. He was gone this morning. Now I'm glad. I looked in all corners :unsure: ....

Is that true that bread is harmful for all the birds? All those birds in the parks look very healthy and like white bread so much. They don't eat only bread, it is like cakes and sweets for people.

I would say: Yes, that is true.
If it was only one newspaper article which asserts that it's bad for birds, that would be no cause for concern. But there are many articles about this problem every year. And nature / bird organisations frequently point to this fact, too.
White bread has no nutritive value, it's not very healthy for us, too. Look at all the dogs running around and being fed with bread and cake, they are fat, have respiration problems and cardiac insufficiency.

If it was only you with some pieces of bread once a week, maybe that was half as bad. But go to a lake with ducks, stay there for 3 hours and count the people throwing bread towards the ducks...

I hope, that he/she was able to fly. Two years ago I found also a little eurasian swift, I brought it to a woman, which was able to feed swifts (it's not easy for sure). The little guy is grown very nice. Three weeks later we could collect him there. This swift started then to fly from my hand. It was an amazing moment.

They no longer have strength, because there are not enough insects in the air and they have to make an emergency landing... . here is a big lake nearby, I hope he made it ...

It is not that simple with ducks. Sometimes they ignore bread at all and sometimes are very hungry and eat it. And when they are hungry, each duck gets only a very small piece of bread(if any), because there are very many of them(about 40 and then their number increases to 100). Bread clearly is an addition to their main food, exactly like sweets for people. On the small pond there are a few ducks, but I don't feed them anymore because usually people with dogs come there and dogs scare those ducks and ducklings when they are too close to the bank of the pond. So better not to teach them to go out, let them hide among the plants.

Today June 7 is the global Swift day :D
http://worldswiftday.org/en/home/

Here in SE they are now redlisted as VU (vulnerable) after declining 25-45% during the last three generations (24 years).
They blame it on the lack of nesting habitats but I think it also depends on less flying insects..
