Migrating Storks

The most know migrating bird are the storks. Storks are mostly found in Europe and for winter they migrate to sub Saharan Africa

The storks are found to migrate for late winter and early spring and they return south for early fall in late summer. During migration the storks rest at various places. These resting places are called as "Stepping stone Biotopes"

The storks take their routes over Turkey, Syria, Lebanon, and Israel. They avoid taking shortcuts like other birds like flycatchers and warblers

Storks travel on air currents to move from one place to another. The storks locate warm air currents and leave the current to carry them up in the sky. This makes them to move smoothly for long distances. Storks migrate in large number as well limits their migration routes
