Home of Storks


Home of Storks - Quinta Grande - Portugal

Storks are a really common animal here in Portugal, but it wasn’t always like that, so there’s an environmental law to protect their nests. In this case, the storks have taken this house many years ago, there’s a lot of nests in it, and the owner can’t do anything with the house while they’re there.
For me, I think it’s awesome! This is one of those places I keep passing by, almost every holiday, and it’s always a little bit different, sometimes the nests are empty, sometimes there’s rain and we can see the storks standing up like a living umbrella, this time I had the pleasure to photograph this couple, and the field was cultivated. I had luck to pull over from the road and take some minutes to take this photo.
