I don't know anything about storks even though my grandmother's last name was Boćian.

I just saw a wonderful piece on TVP about some storks who "ryzykowaly" (took the risk) to come to Poland from Africa despite the cold and snow and were shown all this love and attention from the locals. It really was very touching to see the locals feed the birds and worry so about them. Apparently, nothing unites a village like the presence of a mating pair of storks.

Pretty birds. When I saw real ones in Germany as kid I thought them kinda scary. I thought they looked different for some reason. ^_^
I even dreamed last year a Stork nest fell thru my roof

does that confer an abundace of luck if the roof caves in? :)
..........If I'm not mistaken, they are also revered in Germany?

seemed so... the home across from the Weiss family farm outside Nuremberg had a nest. Everyone seemed thrilled.
My German was juvenile at best in that time. The international language of food is why I wanted to stay. YUM!
It was big and empty when we visited again a few years later in winter. Looked like a roc nest!

My guy said it was fortuitous dream. My dream self was horrified...LAWL. Boy if it means luck I'm gonna strike the lottery soon >_<

Those ones pictures look so elegant

I had NEVER seen a stork until I had my first sighting back in 1978.
I, like most New Jerseyans my age, had only heard and read about them.
I was enthralled, to put it simply.
And to see their nests! Magnificent.
I re-tell the experience to my daughter (apparently ad nauseum) over and over again.
I can't wait to bring her to Poland and show her myself!

I remember reading an article where a map seemed to suggest that Polish storks spent their winter in South Africa, not north Africa. Could that be correct?
