At noon the second chick in the nest was hatched.

In the video we can see male Marko at the left  and mother Miina feeding the chicks. It seems as if family life in the nest is still a little strange to Miina and she must listen to her maternal instincts, or maybe this is her first clutch? From what do we conclude this: yesterday she tried to feed a chick still in the egg shell … But surely she will adapt to the circumstances.

In the video male Karl II arrives at the nest to feed the chicks. Both adults have ensured that  all chicks are properly fed – with young stork chicks it is still easy.

The three older chicks are a week old today. The youngest and smallest was hatched two days later and the difference in size is visible to the eye..
