Record storks spotted in Sicily after 500-year absence


(ANSA) - Palermo, July 19 - A record 70 stork couples are
nesting in Sicily just two decades since the return of the
migrating bird after a 500-year absence, LIPU-BirdLife Italia
reported Thursday.
The bird-protection group cited the provinces of Siracusa,
Agrigento, Trapani and Palermo as popular nesting spots for the
stork, which returned to the island for the first time 20 years
Before that, it had been 500 years since the long-legged
birds were spotted in this part of the Mediterranean.
LIPU-BirdLife Italia credited its artificial nests for
first luring the stork to Sicily, in its migratory path from
North Africa.
"Today," it said, "the majority of their nests are in the
medium-tension power lines by Enel," the Italian energy giant.
