Abstract. With the exception of western Europe, little is known about foraging by White Storks on rubbish dumps. Information is presented on this phenomenon along the migration routes and wintering grounds of the White Stork. White Stork foraging on rubbish dumps is a common behavior in northern Africa and the Middle East and appears related to the wintering of European White Storks in new areas closer to their breeding grounds. South Africa, where a local breeding population has established… 
Diet variability in the White Stork Ciconia ciconia in eastern Algeria
TLDR
The diet of the White Stork Ciconia ciconia was studied at El Merdja, Algeria, from 1997 to 1999 and in 2007 by analysing 240 regurgitated pellets, finding that insects dominated during each month and year of the study.
The white stork Ciconia ciconia in the northeast of Algeria, and its relation with climatic change between 1996 and 2014
Abstract The north of Algeria is the site of important wetlands and lagoons of high ecological, cultural and economic features, with significant capital to preserve. The country ratified the Ramsar
Foraging in landfills: Feeding behavior of the White Stork (Ciconia ciconia) and kleptoparasitism by Black Kites (Milvus migrans)
ABSTRACT The decline of the White Stork (Ciconia ciconia) in the Iberian Peninsula was averted within the last 30 years, partially due to an increase in food availability in landfills. In this study,
Variation in White Stork (Ciconia ciconia) diet along a climatic gradient and across rural-to-urban landscapes in North Africa

TLDR
It is suggested that regardless of the climate or landscape, White Storks ensure a constant food intake, despite prey biomass fluctuations, by adapting their diet.
Foraging analysis of Endangered Greater Adsjutant Stork Leptotilus dubios Gemlin in certain habitat of Assam, India
TLDR
The present findings on the foraging assessment of Greater Adjutant Stok Leptotilus dubius Gemlin might be the baseline information for conservation action plan.
Trophic Niche and Feeding Strategy of the White Stork (Ciconia ciconia) during different Phases of the Breeding Season
TLDR
The findings suggest that the White Stork performs a balance in order to satisfy its food requirements by compensating reciprocally between intake of prey numbers and their biomass regardless of the phenological stage of reproduction.
Factors determining the occurrence of anthropogenic materials in nests of the white stork Ciconia ciconia
TLDR
There is no significant effect of the total number of debris in nests on clutch size, number of fledglings, or breeding success, and studies on the influence of the age and sex of individuals in understanding this behaviour and its drivers in bird populations should be continued.

Determination of nest occupation and breeding effect of the white stork by human-mediated landscape in Western Poland
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the type of nesting structure is an important factor influencing both the probability of nest reoccupation and breeding effect in a Central-Eastern European population of white storks.
Common wintering of black kites (Milvus migrans migrans) in Greece, and new data on their wintering elsewhere in Europe
Abstract Black kites of the nominal subspecies Milvus migrans migrans breed in the Western Palearctic and in Central Asia, while the European population is relatively small. The birds winter mostly

White Storks, Ciconia ciconia, forage on rubbish dumps in Poland—a novel behaviour in population
TLDR
The increased frequency of observations during the summer months probably resulted from the greater nutritional needs of large nestlings which force the adults to find alternative food sources or foraging habitat shift by non-breeding birds.
Effect of Rubbish Dumps on Breeding Success in the White Stork in Southern Spain
Abstract Rubbish dumps provide an extra and constant food source for many birds. The White Stork (Ciconia ciconia) is one of the species that have taken advantage of these new foraging areas both
An approach to wintering of Black Stork Ciconia nigra in the Iberian Peninsula
The Iberian Peninsula is one of the few places where Black Stork Ciconia nigra winter in Europe. The Black Stork wintering period in the Iberian Peninsula lasts from mid-November, when the
The effect of migration strategy and food availability on White Stork Ciconia ciconia breeding success
TLDR
Although resident birds can breed earlier and produce more eggs than migrants, there is no advantage in terms of number of fledglings and the year-round settlement of Storks may not present a biological advantage if the quality of their habitat is not guaranteed by the conservation of their grasslands.
Night roosts , flocking behaviour and habitat use of the non-breeding fraction and migrating White Storks Ciconia ciconia in the Wielkopolska region ( SW Poland )
We present data on some aspects of the non-breeding population of White Stork in south-western Poland. The main research aims of this study were to describe the temporal patterns of occurrence of
A contribution to the ecology and reproductive biology of the Marabou stork (Leptoptilos crumeniferus) in East Africa
TLDR
Marabous are common scavengers in regions where game or domestic animals are abundant or near human settlements, but the rapidly growing nestlings require a high-calcium diet containing some small whole vertebrates, such as fish or frogs.
The Food Composition of Immature and Non-breeding White Storks in Poland
TLDR
Generally, the diet of non-breeding storks was similar to breeding birds, but more of the prey was obtained in dry habitats, and their roles changed with latitude, habitat, time, as well as method of data analysis.
Feeding habitat use by colonially-breeding herons, egrets, and ibises in North Carolina
TLDR
The area used and habitats selected by herons nesting in a colony near Beaufort, North Carolina are described to support the hypothesis that colonies can act as "information centres," wherein unsuccessful birds follow successful ones to better feeding locations.
REDUCED AVAILABILITY OF REFUSE AND BREEDING OUTPUT IN A HERRING GULL (LARUS ARGENTATUS) COLONY
TLDR
It is clear that the last-laid egg size decreased significantly between years, more eggs were lost due to predation, and fewer of the hatched young fledged, likely effects of diminishing food resources.
Geographic variation of the winter diet of the Red Kite Milvus milvus in the Iberian Peninsula
TLDR
It is suggested that the use of carrion is influenced not only by its abundance but by its availability to Red Kites, which suggests an active choice of the food, at least in years with low vole densities.
