White Stork, Portugal

White Stork, Tagus River Estuary Reserve, Lisbon, Portugal

An iconic bird of Europe, the White Stork, winters in the fields of the Tagus River Estuary Reserve across the river from Lisbon, Portugal. We spent the day there, and saw everything from Little Bustards to Peregrine Falcons, Flamingos to Red Knots. It is an amazing place, any time of the year.
