Photographer's Note

The storks.

A view of an old nest and a stork.
Storks (lat. Ciconiidae) are a family of tall birds, long legs and necks, long and hard beaks.
The storks are mostly long necks and legs. Height varies from 75 cm to 150 cm. Their tail is mostly short.
The beak is also always long and strong. The feathers of the genus are in black and white tones, depending on the species. Black feathers generally have a metallic sheen, which plays a role at the time of mating, when even white feathers look dazzling.
Storks are heavy birds, with a wide range of wings. For example, the genus Marabou weighs about 9 kg and has a wingspan of 3.2 meters and is one of two birds, in addition to the Andean condor, that have the widest wingspan of all land birds.
Young storks have started to fly and are preparing for a long journey to warmer regions.
