I have just taken these pictures (not the first one) - enjoy!
By the way - this Tympanon on the church is more than 900 years old, and the church as well...
is a stork nest one of the signs of the pocky-clipse?
More like hope and good luck. It's considered a (rare) privilege to have a stork nest atop you home, business, or any other structure for that matter.
Thanks for sharing the photos.
In Germany (and probably elsewhere as well ) the stork is a symbol for a fortunate birth, and fertility in general.
That is pretty cool. No storks in the wild here in North America to my knowledge.
get that the frig away from my house then! in the US, the squirrel nest is a sign of misery, pestilence and general bad moods!
I wonder if the old vlasic pickle commercials, for those old enuf to remember, linked to that cuz the pregnant woman supposedly wanted pickles and the stork itself looked kinda delivery-ish?
That's really cool. Thanks for sharing these pics.(beautiful church too)
Ha ha! Coincidentally I'm sure, but I have found this to be true.
I've never seen a stork
Well, we do have the beautiful Wood Stork! Saw one eat a 2 ft water moccasin a couple years ago
That looks like the church that was in a documentary about the stork's nests and their history....
Thanks for those photos, Chris! Beautiful church, looks like your having nice Spring weather.
Very cool, Chris. Thanks for sharing those photos.
Update: A falcon stole one of the four babies last weekend. The picture has been taken by somebody who has access to the spire/roof.
The stork family has been attacked repeatedly by kestrels.
Move to Florida, we have plenty lol.
Saw a Sand Hill Crane eat a large King Snake, didn't know snakes were on their diet, also never saw one run so fast as when he/she spied that snake lol.
Thanks for the photos, Chris. I knew they are a token of good luck, but didn't know how rare they are and what enemies they have.
