-pa stork bowing in opposite direction-
astounded to find storks never immigrated to the UK
so for all friends in the United Kingdom, the sound of a stork 'here':
(Holland? !! LOL)
babies' 1st lessons in bill clattering
and for all that are not in the UK and may have never seen this:
from Earth Flight/Winged Planet
ASTONISHING!!!!! a must see!! (storks in it too)
storks are mute. bill clattering is an important mode of stork communication at the nest. (but their tongue has an unusual shape as well, looks as if there is an extra bone there, like a hammer? -will show u later?- )
they are xtremely polite n will greet each other every time one of them returns to (or leaves) the nest. and sometimes even their kids.
also when other storks are flying over, all will clatter.
(there have been stork wars over the nest and even over ma stork. -even here storks are seldom /'never' seen. but they'll find each other?-).
when I became familiar, pa stork would greet me too.
(I would say: "heyyyyy..." n he would go 'click click' -no gymnastics! ;-) - )

How wonderful, I remember them from Germany, when I was a little girl! Here in Australia, the nearest thing to it, is the 'Black-necked Stork' (Ephippiorhynchus asiaticus), also known as the 'Jabiru' ... thanks for sharing this info Ine, BB (I will try to visit Jacomina & Karel in Holland as well, maybe you would be interested to meet up, with all of us ???) ;)))
