August 98
  • August 4       Early in the morning, the middle baby run/flew across the tree branch and returned back to the nest right away. The oldest baby fell down from the nest (most probably by an accident) in the evening.

  • August 10       The two elderly babies were leaving the nest quite often. However, they stayed near the nest in order not to miss the feed time.

  • August 11       The third baby got its courage up and left the nest.

  • August 15       Older babies returned to the nest to spend feeding and night time there. The youngest baby had not returned since August 11, although it resided near the nest. The observations revealed that parent storks were feeding the babies on the ground beneath the nest, too. The live show of Kristyna and her family on the Internet was terminated. Thanks to this unique project, thousands of nature fans worldwide took a look into Kristyna's nest.

  • August 28       The babies' DNA analysis revealed the young storks were males. The oldest one was named Ondrej, middle - Hynek and the youngest - Jonas. They all resided near the nest, while their parents were still feeding them.
