the web site has answered my question as to what happened in the stork video I posted above....

The female gets punishment. As the movie shows, the male comes back to the nest and finds his wife with a strange "guy" is to flirt, and chases him immediately. That this is not appreciated, is clearly the behavior that shows the man then. He punishes her by her neck in his mouth to take in order to make clear here that he is the man of the house. By submissive behavior must regain his confidence to show that it is suitable wife for him. The future will tell whether this is the case

The female sure got into trouble for hanging out with another male...serious beating I think.

We used to have a forum just for storks..... ??



Video: Confusion at the European White Stork Nest

I recorded these video clips a few days ago. Currently, things seem to have settled down and there’s an egg in the nest.

---------------------------------------

There have been several storks at this nest. Who will be the male and female who take final possession? Will the previous male be able to defend his nest?

Most European white storks migrate to Africa and India, returning to nest in Europe and western Asia. They prefer open lands without tall trees or thick vegetation, usually in or near wetlands. They sometimes nest in urban areas.

These storks are are a threatened species at their European nesting sites and their European overwintering location. Loss of habitat due to urbanization is the main cause in Europe. The white storks are extensively hunted in Africa.

The white stork is the national bird of Poland and Lithuania.

P.S The white Stork is also the emblem of Alsace in E France.Smile
The Black Stork nest in Estonia was,in former years on HWF but has since moved to an Estonian forum, Looduskalander;
http://www.looduskalender.ee/forum/view ... ?f=2&t=201
As said the camera is streaming now. Only need the BS to arrive from their migration in Africa.!!Smile which is ,any day now hopefully.
Many of the BS have carried transmitters so the recearchers can follow their movements.
