It is already difficult for mother Kati to feed such large chicks
Black stork Must-toonekurg Ciconia nigra
Today the young black storks are two months old. We will probably see them leaving the nest in the next ten days.
What then was brought for breakfast today: fish, frogs and maybe also earthworms … The adults go on foraging trips up to distances of fifty kilometres: in dry summers even longer distances have been noted when ditches and streams have dried out completely.
Because of clear-cutting and forest drainage the natural feeding areas of the birds are reduced creating a kind of ecological trap.
