Have you heard about the stork who lives with her human, but her stork mate comes back every year to see her? Very Sweet Story!






A stork in Croatia was found wounded.  The human nursed her back to life… and created a nest for her on the roof of his house because her wing was no longer viable.

A few years later, a male stork showed up.

And he has been coming back every March 24th, since…

    I had cued up this story before his arrival was due – but I did wonder… almost afraid to know. Glad you did the research for me.
    Yes, an amazing story and so glad she has found a new, younger man! Thank you!

    This is such an amazing story. It drew me to investigate further. You might already know that Klepetan did not make it back this year – the first time in 15 years. A younger male has taken his place tho on the nest with Malena. At first she pushed him off but eventually she accepted him. Klepetan apparently translates to Quack and Malena to small. Beautiful story. I love witnessing the depths that animals invest in each other. I’m not surprised and but always awed and touched.
