Stork (Ooievaar)

Lifeware

Assen, Netherlands

Artist's Description

Holland 2011

The White Stork having for centuries set up its nests near human settlements is regarded with affection, and strongly connected to European culture and tradition.

White Storks build their nests near human settlements and make use of agricultural land. Farming activity gives storks a “table of plenty” (rodents, amphibians, insects, etc.) allowing them to gather to feed in fields. Mostly, however, storks seek food and tranquility in meadows, pastures, flooded areas, ponds, rivers, and stream valleys. As a proverb puts it, “Storks like their feet wet.”
