    By the way - this Tympanon on the church is more than 900 years old, and the church as well...

    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.

    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?

    eta: aha:

    Ha ha! Coincidentally I'm sure, but I have found this to be true.
