We have a Bali painting here that shows the beauty of storks and other birds. I captured only the stork for this meme.
Storks are family-oriented birds who, in addition to being very gentle with their young, are conscientious homemakers, and they return in pairs to the same nesting spot, year after year.
The story goes that when a stork flies south for the winter, it visits the watery swamps of Egypt where the souls of unborn children live. Upon returning, it would carry a child back. The regular absence of the stork during migration made it a likely target of this myth (source:todayspregnancy.com).
