The Red List is led territorial. In D, the black stork 2018 is back on the Red List, as far as I know.
Estonia certainly has experts here who can answer that.

and: Mr. Bauer, how is the Red List formed?
Hans-Günther Bauer: Field ornithologists and birdwatchers of all federal states count the birds in their regions and transmit the stocks and trend information to the umbrella organization of German avifaunists in Münster. The Red List Panel then determines from the prepared data the degree of endangerment of each species of bird.
Currently, the data query and collection for the next Red List begins again. The hazard classification for breeding birds is now being developed in a six-year cycle as part of the international reporting obligations for the EC Birds Directive. Although the last breed bird list was published in 2016, the next is planned for 2020. The Red List of Migratory Birds, which was first presented in 2014, will be available every twelve years in the future. https://www.mpg.de/rote-liste-vogelschutz
Yes, I speak French and German, so thanks so much for your kind informations.
It is right my life's purpose is to do every possible thing for sister earth and all who are living on it. Therefore I would be more calm if Urmas would inform the storks in advance before mesuring and weighting.
Incidentally, Urmas has already lovingly cared for the chicks, when they were not even alive
He has provided a new nest for her parents, Karl and Kati, this season because the old one had fallen apart.
Maybe the animals feel that?
have a nice day
edit: I've read from a bird expert, he had more and more gained the impression that the chicks know him already when he came ringing her.
Yes, Ute, can you please put the source here, if you can find it. I really would like to read it too.
Of course, it comes to my To Do list ... edit: Now I think of something else, in this context. It was also to be read that the animals memorize faces and pass on this experience. That impressed me very much.
... for me it is very interesting question, why there are nest (also WS), where within the 2 first hatched chicks and the third, firth (or 3 + 4., 5.) are all time size difference (also bigger, big) and another nest where there aren't or only very, very little (situation when with enough food delivery isn't problem)
Here is a very interesting article on the effects of the laying order and asynchronous hatching. The amount of nutrients received by the embryo inside the egg, will depend on the order in which the egg was laid.
Personally, I believe that the healthier (well fed) a female bird is, the more nutrients she is able to give to a larger amount of eggs. Which affects the strength and growth of the hatchlings. https://goldengateaudubon.org/blog-post ... trategies/
... The female deposits differing amounts of hormones, immunoglobulins, and antioxidants in the yolk, albumen, and shells of the eggs she lays, which then affects the survival of each hatchling. For instance, in some species, yolk antioxidant and immunoglobulin concentrations may decrease across laying order, thus handicapping the immune system of the last-hatched chicks. However, in the same species, yolk testosterone concentrations may increase with laying order, which may compensate for poorer immune function by helping accelerate growth and food begging rates. ...
"... There is a higher rate of mortality with this hatching strategy (asynchronous hatching), and the last chick is usually not expected to survive and is more of an insurance policy against the loss of the first offspring. ... In some bird species, the firstborn, stronger chicks or even the parents may push the weaker, last born chick(s) out of the nest."
