White Storks

Photo by Boris Roessler / Corbis
Colourful White Storks (Ciconia ciconia) are pictured in a courtship display in Biebesheim, on the Rhine River in west-central Germany.   These migratory birds have a nesting colony, where they have returned every year to rear their young.   White Storks are long-distance migrants that breed as far north as Finland and winter as far south as South Africa.   They are carnivorous (see photo below of stork with a dead young rabbit in its beak).
