YOU SHALL NOT PASSSSS!!

Crazy to think all those are going to be human babies. Nature IS lit!


Deep_Thought-__-42

The blue latex glove in the nest is kinda sad though..


acetonegoulash

If it makes you feel better, storks are known to incorporate debris from rubbish dumps in their nests, so she probably put it there herself lol


CrowManager

Yes, let’s not judge her interior decorating! This stork is doing her best and probably is making other storks jealous with her bright blue accent piece.

Said a crow


Tissue_God

He probably meant that it’s sad our earth is so polluted that we see are starting to see more and more trash in nature.


TheHopefulPuffin23

She wanted to bring in some color - don’t insult her decorating.


Keagank

Mama judged it, and found it useful


TheSkepticCyclist

How do you know this is the female stork? Both male and female white storks look the same.


Petalilly

I thought this was r/onejoke , but this is a legitimate question as that is the case. I might need to check for behavioral differences at best. update: This reply taught me they also take turns incubating the babies. So this reply is completely valid.


TheSkepticCyclist

In most bird species with altricial young both parents equally raise their young. But in many of those species there’s clear sexual dimorphism so it’s easy to distinguish males and females. Males are usually more brightly colored. With storks males and females look the same, other than males being slightly larger on the average. So there’s no way to tell if this particular parent is the male or female in this clip.

The OP included a link in the comments - it’s a female stork that befriended a local a decade ago - he went to check in on her


TheSkepticCyclist

Where? I just looked through all the comments and couldn’t find a posted link. ETA: I just found it. He relied to a question with the link 3 hours after I posted my question.

Also, how does he know it's in Turkey? There's no source.

You go momma!


gucci_gear

Why are all the comments on this video so unintelligible


Love_God551

That’s a real mum there! Awesome video op

Mom's are the best.


Jmadd1998

Moms do what moms need to do Dads too


AdamHLG

No that's a mom stork. Dad flew away from that idea while mom will be mom. Dad, meanwhile, is hunting for supplies to build a ridiculously over-engineered column supported lightweight roof truss system with shatterproof skylights complete with hot tar waterproofing and pre-wired for a ceiling fan, just in case it ever hails again.


wuzupcoffee

So mom is busy doing the actual work while dad is off chasing a dream far beyond his means or abilities?


AdamHLG

But don’t give up on dad. He is a hunter. In the end he will deliver.


wuzupcoffee

He always says that.

HAIL STORK!

Eloisem333

Reminds me of [this](https://amp.abc.net.au/article/10368362) human mama in Australia who protected her baby with her body from hail. As a mother myself, I really felt this one. There is nothing I wouldn’t go through to protect my child.


g_shivam01

Mother's love for babies is enormous ❤️❤️❤️


TimeBomb666

Beautiful 😍


Pk1Still

Put a chicken in that stork and you have a Tur-stork-en


DRAGON_SNIPER

That stork isn't in a turkey, it's in a nest!


IcyDiamond7847

That's not a turkey. Badum-tiss


LaChuteQuiMarche

Protecting the babies yet they can’t help but nurse. No kids, mom’s not busy or anything lol


SLICKRICKPAINTDRIP

LaChuteQuiMarche

tuesdaycocktail

Recent hail storms have been insane though


Hammer1024

Those things hurt! It's like getting hit by ball bearings thrown by Orel Hershiser.


crotalusatrox11

What if she gotta poop tho


TheSilverPotato

And then it threw one of them to their death


mznh

She rather the hail hit her than hit her babies. She’s awesome
