The Barn Swallow is the most widespread species of swallow in the world. It is found in Europe, Africa, Asia and Americas. Birds with blue upperparts, a long, deeply forked tails and curved, pointed wings can be seen both in open country and among man-build structures, which are for them perfect places to build characteristic cup nests.
We usually think: birds leave in autumn, because they are afraid of winter. They fly away from cold and lack of food. But we can look at this phenomenon from a different perspective – birds arrive in spring, to take advantage of free space and abundance of food, to be able to bring up greater number of nestlings.
White Storks are large wading bird. They can be even 100-125 cm tall, with a 155-200 cm wingspan and a weight of 2.3-4.5 kg. They are mostly white except for the black wing flight feathers. Storks have beautiful, eye catching red bills and legs, which actually are black when they are young.
