Locals from Neaua mount nesting platforms for White Storks with help from Milvus Group

DSCF5037According to the people of Neaua (Mureș county), until two years ago there had not been a stork nest in the village for as long as anyone could remember. But in 2012, the first storks appeared and immediately started to build their nest. The breeding was successful in the first year, but in 2013 only one of the storks came back. As the nest was continuously added to over the last two years, it started to be too large and heavy for the electric pylon and he grew too close to the electric wires. Milvus Group decided that, to keep it safe and steady, the stork nest has to be arranged a special platform, placed on the top of the pylon.

DSCF5043The adjustable platform which can be placed on different sized pylons, was manufactured by László Bakó, a local villager. On the 26th February, co-workers from Globen firm, Târgu Mureș, took down the old nest and on the 28th of February, after suspending the wires from the pylon, they mounted the nesting platform. A part of the old nest was placed on the platform to encourage the storks to occupy it.

We are waiting for the final testing and wondering if the storks will like their renovated home. We assume they will!

      Buna ziua,

      Pe stalpul respectiv cuibareste deja o pereche de barza, sau incearca sa-si faca cuib? Montare unui suport pentru cuib de barza pe stalp de electricitate poate fi destul de scump. In consecinta, noi incurajam montarea de suporturi pe stalpii pe care berzele cuibaresc deja. In aceste situatii suportul rezolva pe o parte problemele pe care cuibul cauzeaza retelei de electricitate (scurtcircuit, caderi de tensiune) pe de alta parte ofera o baza sigura de cuibarit berzelor.

      Berzele isi aleg locul cuibului dupa reguli inca ne-intelese in totalitate nici de catre ornitologi. In majoritatea cazurilor, daca exact pe acel stalp nu incearca berzele sa-si faca cuib (sau nu au deja cuib), degeaba montam un suport pentru ca nu vor cuibarii pe el. In putine cazuri berzele pot fi “atrase” la un nou stalp – de ex. daca incearca sa-si construiasca cuib in apropiere, dar nu reusesc, un suport bine montat poate sa le atraga. Dar asemenea cazuri sunt rare. Daca aveti un cuib sau exista o pereche care incearca sa-si contruiasca cuib pe respectivul stalp – atunci va putem indruma mai departe.
