Cegonha-branca, White stork, (Ciconia ciconia)

Hello Friends!
Today I present this I took some time ago.
On that day I was visiting the little village of Montemor o Velho, well kown by itīs castle, when in a very small square I found kind a balcony at the same level of the nest...
I stay there enjoying this moments of love,joy and happyness...

The white stork is common, especially in the southern half of the country.There is a resident quota, although most of the birds is migratory. The best time to observe the species is at Spring when the nests are occupied. as if this is a very humanized means associated with bird, its detection seems rather easy.

Have a good week and thanks for viewing...
