Storks of Faro, Portugal Photos

I didn’t know much about Faro before I arrived, so I was amazed when I saw storks nesting on top of a church. I took a few photos as I thought it would be rare, but I soon saw them nesting all over the town. I took a few more photos of storks in the air and on a lamppost.

I later saw the storks’ migration in a documentary, and there’s a lot about it on Wikipedia. They winter in Africa, and sometimes a pair use the same nest for several years.
