The absolute highlight of this breeding season is undoubtedly the discovery of a black stork ground breeding in the Oberallgäu that dwarfs everything: (photos too)

Hi all :)

I've received an incredible photo of a juvenile black stork in Germany from my acquaintance. Take a look!
Image

I also find the story pretty interesting - here's his message (15.09.2023):

"The city is Bielefeld in North-Western Germany. You are welcome to use my photos.

The first sighting of the Black Stork in the city was by me in the evening of 03.09.2023 at Stauteich II. Stauteich II used to be an artificial lake but has been turned into a rainwater retention basin. Here’s the location: https://maps.app.goo.gl/rEmrM2YQwKmZCpdT9.

Since then, me and a lot of other birders have seen the stork at Stauteich II basically every day. He tends to walk around the rainwater retention basin catching small fish that are there. He sometimes gets into fights with the Grey Herons that are also there. Me and other birders have remarked how friendly he seems to be. He is not shy at all and will come very close to you. He doesn’t seem to care about people at all.

You can find the sightings on Ornitho.de: https://www.ornitho.de/index.php?m_id=9 ... tauteich+2.

The past few days have been very rainy and I haven’t seen him at Stauteich II. However, I frequently see him sitting on top of the roofs in my neighbourhood from my kitchen window (I live in the third floor). He was just sitting on top of the roof preening himself. Me and some other people just stood around and watched him — and he wasn’t bothered by our presence at all.

This morning I saw him at Stauteich II again, probably since the water has now drained a bit again."


Here are more photos:

I wasn't sure where to post it, so I'm sorry if I choose wrong thread - then please, Marika, move it to the right one

Wow , beautiful photos :D !
It's great that it was possible to take pictures up close, but it's quite unusual that he lost his shyness. He may have been raised in a rescue station where he was used to the presence of people. Who knows.

Thank you Tina for an interesting post and photos :) .

GOOD OMEN: Black storks flew near a village in Razgradsko (PHOTOS)
The beautiful birds have come in search of food

News 16:41 - 18 October 2023 https://lupa.bg/news/dobra-polichba-che ... 9news.html

A pair of black storks, which have not yet migrated to the southern countries for the winter, flew in search of food in a reservoir near the village of Malak Porovets, Razgrad BTA reported. (Marika: Malk Porovets bg. Малък Поровец is a village in Isperih Municipality of Razgrad Province - in Northeastern Bulgaria)

The stork is a divine bird, a symbol of health and longevity.

According to folk beliefs, the black stork has magical abilities and wherever it settles, it brings luck, health and prosperity.

It is also believed that if you harm this bird, great misfortune awaits you.

According to Egyptian beliefs, the cry of this divine bird spiritualized everything created by the Sun god.

In Christianity, the stork is a symbol of purity and purification. Because it eats snakes, and in this religion they are associated with the devil and unclean forces - the stork restores the purity of the world, cleanses it of evil and sin.

The black stork is a less common species, hunting by wading into shallow water and catching its prey with its long bill.

Am 17.08. nahmen wir einen sehr stark geschwächten jungen Schwarzstorch auf. Er hatte eine Ständerverletzung und das Gefieder war voller Parasitten. Am 20.08. übergaben wir den Vogel an die Tierarztpraxis Rafael, wo er von Frau Grasnick versorgt wurde. Am 23.09. konnte er wieder zu uns in Pflege genommen werden. Die Verletzungen am Ständer sind gut verheilt. Den Winter wird er bei uns verbringen müssen, bis er voraussichtlich im Frühjahr ausgewildert werden kann.


On August 17th we took in a very weak young black stork. He had a bone injury and his feathers were full of parasites. On August 20th We handed the bird over to the Rafael veterinary practice, where it was cared for by Ms. Grasnick. On September 23rd he could be taken back into our care. The injuries to the stand have healed well. He will have to spend the winter with us until he can probably be released into the wild in the spring.
