So cute! Here is a video of the squirrel:
On May 31, Trine quoted this text from Olaus Magnus.Trine wrote: ↑May 31st, 2019, 7:49 pm"[A black stork] will pluck the feathers from one of its young and topple it from the nest, either because the chick is developing poorly, or the parent finds it laborious to feed it. Popular belief has it that this amounts to paying its tithes, or offering rent for its lodging to the owners of the farm."
Olaus Magnus, 1555
Yes, Trine. This book is indeed very fascinating.
Thanks, Anne7. This is a very very funny text. Written very human, as the storks are credited with human emotions
My pleasure, Poliff!
A huge thank you to you, Anne7! You are right, it is huge!Anne7 wrote: ↑August 21st, 2019, 10:04 pmHi, Ari!
I don't think there are free pdf downloads available on the internet.
You can read online (only part of it?) on Google Books.
(That is where I read excerpts.)

Volume 3 is here:

It is a huge oeuvre (3 VOLUMES, each about 500-600 pages, I think )

Agreed, Poliff! The nest has previously been a place of joy and now has become an object of nostalgia and quietness.
