Photographer's Note

Hi dear TE friends

Place : Municipality- Fundo / Parish-Fundo (zone center of Portugal).

Theme: Spring time / White Stork (Ciconia ciconia)

To see: map view and workshop

Announcement of coming spring


Storks are a nature wonder. Nobody can ignore this fascinating kind of birds.

Their bodys are covered with feathers, mainly white, but with red legs and beak.

Height rounding 1 meter and about 3 Kg. They can live in different places, there is no specific habitat. They can eat vertebrate little animals. This kind of birds lives in constant migrations and they are monogamics. Storks don't have pharyngeal, that's why they cannot "sing".

The eggs with the little birds blown by the Spring and when it rains the mother spread the big wings to protect the little creatures.

In each nest there are no more than 5 eggs and it takes about 20 or 30 days to let them born.


- The numbers of White Stork in Portugal:

* 15 368 surveyed birds
* 7 684 nest with couples living in Portugal
* 1 000 colognes, but this number can be higher.

This is my first wild life photo,This photo was taken together to the A-23 motorway.
I hope you like it!



I hope you like it, a big hug to all of you TE friends
