A few years ago, more precisely in 2021, our intervention...
Dumbrăvioara, the Stork Village
It’s been 14 years since the first webcam to record the life of storks was installed in the village centre. Furthermore, should you ever find yourself in this area, coming in from the National Road 15, you may notice a stork nest almost on every electric power pole.
The White Stork, one of the most popular bird species, shows a tendency to live near us, humans. It certainly is beneficial for both parties!
The impressive nests are renewed year after year by both the male and the female. The storks feed on shallow wetlands and agricultural lands (pastures, grasslands, fallows) and their diet changes according to the season: rodents and insects (locusts, grasshoppers) in dry weather conditions, and aquatic animals (frogs, snakes) in rainy intervals. Generally, they raise 3 to 5 chicks, depending on the weather conditions and the available food resources.
Via our webcam, you will have direct access to the most important time of their life. We know you’re great fans. In 2021, we registered over 213,000 unique pageviews. Thank you for your visit and we hope you’ll follow the storks this year, too!
