Another Favorite Bird

Either spring is near, and the stork I saw today was among the first to migrate back, or it was one of the rare ones that doesn’t migrate and spends the winter here.

In any case, I saw it on my daily walk, and it flew towards our village and seemed to circle above it for a bit before I lost sight of it.

It didn’t look quite as impressive as this photo, but it was almost overhead.
