The life of White Storks is really fascinating ...

 Aktion Pfalzstorch-Bornheim 3,

     When I started to watch this season the Bornheim 3 nest ..I saw a male with two rings ..he was a nice stork and he found a mate soon.After a while the female of the nest took her place beside him and the couple had been seen mating ...But a male with no rings won a fight a little later and the male with the two rings left ..Female left too but a couple of days returned to her nest with the new without rings male...
     Now you will wonder why I write all these things ...The only I can say is that storks are really fascinating birds ...This afternoon the male left the nest for a while ..Female was left back and soon I saw her displaying ...The old male with the two rings came at nest and they spent together the afternoon while the master male was away !! ..Maybe it was just my idea but I had the feeling that female was really happy to see her old partner ...They displayed together acting very interesting a couple ..But the happy time didn't last for long ..Two hours later the master male returned and the old male left ..I;m not sure if they fought or not the cam refreshes every minute ..But I think not ...He knew when was the time to leave ...He had just come to see his old nest and mate ...
     Funny but the female didn;t look very happy with the return of her husband !!!

See the pics of all the story ...and I m sure you will tell after it ..that srorks are really fasinating birds!!!

Can an afternoon be so happy for this female stork ?? The Greetings between them

See how she was reacting during those two hours with the old male...She has a ring on her left leg ..He has two rings on both legs 

 and her mate returned ...Can you see any enthousiasm on her ???LOL
