In Animals: The White Stork

Storks are migratory birds, that live on every continent on the globe except for Antarctica. Their nests, which can be found in trees, on buildings, among rocks, or on the ground, are usually quite large and may be used for many years. Mama storks typically lay clutches of 4 eggs, and when hatched, the nearly naked baby storks are cared for by both parents. After about 2 months the chick learn to fly. Storks have fairly long lifespans. The oldest known white stork lived for more than 39 years. The Stork’s association with babies is an ancient story. When a child asked, “Where did I come from?”, the parents simply said “The stork brought you.” ................................................................................................ #science #nature #animals #education #photography
