Another rainy day! But as you say... good "eating" weather. Thank you for the videos, translations, etc.

Now will these young storks actually land on the ground or will they land only on roof-tops for a while? If they see a frog etc. will they hunt it down yet?

Good evening.
They are back into the wet nest.

Hello Luana! :D

Yes, they will walk on the meadow with their parents searching for food like bugs, larva, insects, mice, mole earth worm.
They are learning now from their parents how to hunt and where to hunt for food.
From day to day they are more and more on their own.

Here is a video I took of my stork family, 2 adults and two youngs how they are looking for food on a meadow all together.

Hi Doris,
Nice video....interesting to see "your stork family" walking around in the meadow looking for food.
Guess it won't be long until our stork family begins their long journey.

Have a great week everyone 8)

Thank you Cheral.
I think, the time is nearly over.
Maybe we will see the adults here and than.
But I think the youngsters will leave real soon.
Here the juvies are already coming together in groups.

Hello!

Hello,
today we have again an adult stork at noon in the nest.
Resting and preening.
The adults are often molting when they have finished the nesting season.

A lot of clattering this afternoon. Finally a juvie came to the nest, begged for food and got a little bite.
Cico and Luna flew of and a bit later also the juvie.

Now the nest is empty again. :?

Edit:

One stork stays overnight.

Hello, news from the Stork Center:

Storchenzentrum hat geschrieben:Hallo Storchenfreunde,

wie wir gemeinsam beobachten können sind die Tage unserer Jungstörche im Internethorst gezählt.
Es übernachtet nur noch Luna, Cico sowie ein Jungstorch. Auf den Wiesen im Spreewald finden sich die Jungstörche zu Trupps von zur Zeit bis zu zwanzig Tieren. Nach unserer Ansicht werden uns die Jungstörche bald verlassen und gen Süden ziehen.

Herzliche Grüße aus dem Spreewald

Euer Storchenzentrum


Stork Hello friends,

As we all can observe the days of our young storks are counted in the Internet's nest.
Only Luna, Cico and a young stork stayed in the nest over night. On the meadows in the Spree Forest, the young storks find the time to squads of up to twenty animals. In our view, the young storks will soon leave and move south.

Greetings from the Spreewald

Your stork center

Doris,
Thank you :D so much for posting updates and photos/videos each day so I can catch up on the happenings with our stork family. This stork season seems to have gone very fast but that is because I haven't had a chance to check in every day as I have in the past.

Soon there will just be an empty nest and they will all be on their big journey.

Long Trek about to begin....are we ready?

Beitragvon foxfire8424 » So 7. Aug 2011, 00:48

Another successful season in Vetchau....High Five everyone! 8) We know they could have done fine without us watching and fussing, but who could miss all those wonderful moments, when eggs increase, little beaks pop out, and even the scary ones, when babies don't make it. :cry: This is live nature, after all....we want to see it ALL! :shock:

Special thanks to Doris and Regenstern and the others for keeping us posted during your day and our sleep. It helps a LOT, please continue to post and cam for us....we do appreciate your efforts.

Stay well all, until next breeding season. God willing, we will meet here again. Best regards, Barb
