Near our house white storks live already since 10 years. This year they have three offspring. In the very dry summer we put a  bowl of water in the garden. A few days ago the young storks fledged and imitating  their parents, they too started to go drinking from the water bowl. The bowl was enjoyed to full measure – two young ones lay by it, kept their beaks in the water and felt the pleasure of the cool water for a long time

It was such an amusing sight that we wanted to share it with others too.
