Seeing Cigüeña’s, Storks, Along The Camino is a very unique and interesting experience. I remember as I first began to see from a distance large nests on top of light posts and churches that made me wonder what could that be. My friends quickly educated me on the cigüeña’s or storks that make these high locations their home. Perfect perches for them to look out across the landscape. It is always fun to see where they will make their nest and how many there will be as they dot the roads and small villages along the camino saying hello to all those who pass by.

Recent developments suggest that only taxonomic should include family stork . The cicónidos commonly known as storks. They are long-necked birds, waders and waterfowl that inhabit warm temperate regions of the world. Their diet consists of frogs , fish and small birds or mammals .
Are mainly distributed in Europe , Asia and Africa , with only 3 species in America .” – WIKIPEDIA
