“Is That a Nest?”

That’s what I said when I saw this for the first time:

Huge nests atop power lines are not an uncommon site in Romania. These nests belong to white storks (yes, the very same bird that is associated with delivering babies), and can weigh hundreds of pounds! White storks can be four feet tall and have a wingspan of seven feet, so with two adults plus around four chicks, you can see why the nest needs to be so big.

Stork nests like these can be seen in other European countries as well, but they are very common in Romania. Have you ever seen anything like this?
