A couple of white storks nesting on the chimney of an abandonded olive oil mill.

While exploring the wildlife of the island of Lesbos (Greece) I discovered this white stork nest. In the absence of trees, the birds selected the highest point in the area which happens to be the chimney of the abandonded olive oil mill. I observed and photographed them as they took turns incubating the eggs and flying away in search of food. White storks make for extraordinary partners and parents.
