Dumbrăvioara online again

Dear friends of the storks, in the last few days we encountered technical problems with the live transmission from the Dumbrăvioara stork nest.

First egg in the nest

Interesting discovery in the stork nest from Dumbravioara, during the night from 22rd to 23th of April: the “male” who occupied the nest (as we supposed, because usually males are occupying the nests) is actually a female. She laid the first egg at 03:57 a.m.

After only two hours, at 05:51 a.m. she throws the egg from the nest.

Seems like that we are witnessing the same events as last year (Link). Stay with us and watch the “soap opera” from the stork nest from Dumbravioara…
