White Stork Webcam

White Storks regularly build their nests on top of buildings and they will normally lay between 2 and 5 eggs. The incubation period will last between 25 and 35 days.

When the chicks hatch, they are almost naked, however they will quickly develop a covering of fluffy feathers that will help to keep them warm. Both parents will feed them, and the chicks can eat up to 60% of their own body weight per day.

The chicks will begin to stand after around 3-4 weeks, and after a few months they will begin to learn to fly. The chicks will spend the best part of three months in the nest, before striking out on their own. Even after leaving the nest they will still be dependant on their parents for food for several weeks.
