The black stork camera is sad to look at

The smaller can no longer stand up.

It all started last night, when the youngest hatchling, who probably hatched later, could not want to get up as his/her siblings. A certain sluggishness in behavior could be noticed a little earlier, but it could also be blamed on the heat.

It's sad to see the torment of a bird, but unfortunately things happen so in wild nature and we can't interfere.

In March, before installing the web camera in the nest, we waited impatiently for the start of male bird Karl’s migration. Karl did have a tracking device but the lack of GSM cover in southern Sudan kept us in the dark during four months, from mid-November 2018 when Karl reached his wintering site. However, on March 16 during the spring migration Karl’s locations were registered and all seemed to be in order. We had nearly two weeks of time to install the camera at the nest. The nest could be seen in the web camera from March 24 onwards.

The young bird Aru (letter A on the leg number) has injured the underside of its wing on its test flights but the slight tear seems to be healing. It is the bird that spends most of its time in the nest. The other young bird can be seen in early morning

In early morning they set off on flights but the young birds must be back in the nest around eight o’clock because male Karl might come to the nest with the early morning prey about then. Who arrives too late in the nest may be left without food – and who wants that.

The young storks have flying exercises in the morning, everything seems to be order with the orienteering sense of the young birds. After that they have to wait for male Karl with the morning meal and the day goes on.

For some days we have no longer seen mother Kati in the nest. As we already know from earlier years the female leaves first, to head quietly for the wintering grounds.
