Today we drove to look for black stork nests. The first was a beautiful, diverse forest, with many potential nest trees for several large bird species, and most importantly, we found a total of 5 nests. One of them is an oak-black stork nest that has been inhabited for at least 7-8 years there. ..... Let's wait for spring.

Abdim's Stork...These dark spots on the legs can also be seen in our black storks!

The description says, gray legs
We have observed that our black storks have partially dark legs. That is probably normal. Has nothing to do with sunbeam or frost. I think the Abdim's stork is genetically close to the black stork. :shake:

and in the wilderness :laugh:

So it's not always sure that we see pictures of the black stork

:hi: Liz,
yes, grey legs by Abdim's stork, but nothing about the "black/dark spots"
yes, it can be normal - our skin is after (healthy) sun-bad also more dark :mrgreen: or that is only age specific change :puzzled:
they are very much photos BS, you see that spots on more? (now I can't remember)

Latvian State Forest Experts are building nests for black storks, Uģis Bergmanis, Senior Environmental Expert of LVM, tells about the newest nest.
👉 “During the monitoring of black stork in the territories of JSC“ Latvian State Forests ”, we found that one of the longest black stork nests in the Rendas forest district of the South Kurzeme region has fallen upon the removal of the support branch. In order to promote the nesting of the stork in the established micro-reserve, at the beginning of March we went to the nesting area with our colleagues and built an artificial nest. Our experience shows that restoring as soon as possible the fallen nest in the same tree gives good results - the stork usually accepts new homes and successfully nest. ”
📣 Black stork nests select the thickest trees of adult forests. The largest part of the population of these storks in Latvia nest in areas managed by JSC “Latvijas valsts meži”, where micro-reserves are created for protection of the species, territories for the protection of habitats, as well as no forestry works in the vicinity of the nest. LVM environmental experts annually build artificial nests to promote nesting of protected birds - black storks, ospreys, golden eagle and eagle owls.
