White storks are back

Today, near the nature reserve, four ring-necked parakeets flying and calling.

Jan van Eyck, Madonna, Jesus, and ring-necked parakeet

In the fifteenth century, famous Flemish painter Jan van Eyck depicted this species in Jesus’ hands.

Not far away, two white storks are back today on their nest on the meadow. Probably, non-migratory storks (as many white storks in the Netherlands are descendants of breeding projects).
