One of the largest birds living in our latitudes, most of its plumage is white, while only the flight feathers and the large coverts are black. The large beak and long legs are coloured in red. The white stork can be spotted on meadows, near fish ponds, but also close to human settlements where it likes to build its nest. In the wild, it feeds on frogs, voles, moles, grass snakes, ground squirrels and insects. When summer gives way to autumn, it migrates south. The white stork enjoys special protection.
