White Storks in trouble

Moving on passage and encountering bad weather, luckily. some of the locals are helping out or many will die. These articles are from Bulgaria but I've read a blog from Belarus too where a similar thing has happened.

Interesting photos. The poor critters look to be in a bad way. Good for the kind hearts who took them in.
