White Stork nest in Castilla y León

White Stork

The habit of the White Stork (Ciconia ciconia) to nest on buildings (when they can’t find enough trees around of the right type) began in the Middle Ages and is likely to be the reason behind the legend that they would bring babies in blankets. In this photo, the only baby visible is a young stork poking its head above the top of the nest.
