Birdwatching in Central Greece: Storks of Meteora

A few days before their departure, young White Storks are still hanging around their nests. Their parents have already left the area and now it is time for those youngsters to start their epic journey to Africa.

The Black Storks are also getting prepared for the same journey, even though their migration is far less spectacular, due to their low numbers. Still, it has become a fairly widespread breeder in mainland Greece, from Thrace to Thessaly. The area of Meteora holds many breeding pairs of this beautiful bird.
