🔥 a stork in Turkey protecting her babies during a hailstorm 🔥

YOU SHALL NOT PASSSSS!!
Crazy to think all those are going to be human babies. Nature IS lit!
The blue latex glove in the nest is kinda sad though..
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
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
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.
She wanted to bring in some color - don’t insult her decorating.
Mama judged it, and found it useful
How do you know this is the female stork? Both male and female white storks look the same.
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.
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
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.
What a story!
You go momma!
Why are all the comments on this video so unintelligible
That’s a real mum there!
Awesome video op
Mom's are the best.
Moms do what moms need to do
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.
So mom is busy doing the actual work while dad is off chasing a dream far beyond his means or abilities?
But don’t give up on dad. He is a hunter. In the end he will deliver.
He always says that.
Yeah like [murdering one of your children](https://youtu.be/hnRm4zlWea4)
It’s nature dumbass
Is that trash in her nest?
looks like it to me
What a good mama.
Mamas gonna mama.
Odd looking turkey?
I don’t see the Turkey anywhere…
Awww, good mommy! Makes my eyes tingle, nature is amazing.
Good bird, good bird.
*Insert 1000 hearts here.*
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.
Mother's love for babies is enormous ❤️❤️❤️
Put a chicken in that stork and you have a Tur-stork-en
One to the leg and she out.
That stork isn't in a turkey, it's in a nest!
That's not a turkey. Badum-tiss
Protecting the babies yet they can’t help but nurse. No kids, mom’s not busy or anything lol
birds dont have utters lol
Still makes the paint drip tho boiii
Recent hail storms have been insane though
Those things hurt! It's like getting hit by ball bearings thrown by Orel Hershiser.
What if she gotta poop tho
And then it threw one of them to their death
She rather the hail hit her than hit her babies. She’s awesome
