Anthropogenic changes have strongly influenced the European landscape. In the last 50 years electric power-line networks have become a conspicuous part of that landscape. From the outset it was known that these lines and their support structures would cause fatalities in the white stork, Ciconia ciconia. From a long-term (1983–2006) study in Poland, we analysed breeding performance in stork nests on four types of structure (chimneys, roofs, trees and electricity poles). Whilst the numbers of… 
Factors Influencing The Breeding Success of White Storks Ciconia ciconia in Eastern Romania
Summary. The White Stork is a farmland and wetland bird that has become part of village communities by nesting in urban areas. Despite breeding close to people, allowing easy access for monitoring,
Two-fold increase in White Stork (Ciconia ciconia) population in Lithuania: a consequence of changing agriculture?
TLDR
The census revealed that the White Stork population in Lithuania has doubled since the previous census in 1994, possibly due to favourable changes in farming practices, with birds increasingly settling on the overhead electricity line poles and gradually abandoning nests in trees.
Environmental Factors Affecting Nest-Site Selection and Breeding Success of the White Stork (Ciconia ciconia) in Western Turkey
Abstract We investigated nest site selection and breeding success of White Storks (Ciconia ciconia) in relation to geographical features, weather, and land use in western Turkey. Locations of nests
Factors influencing fledgling success of the White Stork Ciconia ciconia in Eastern Poland
The paper presents the results of a study on the influence of breeding site habitat of the White Stork Ciconia ciconia on breeding parameters, conducted 2000 to 2014 in Eastern Poland. During that
Selective Forces Responsible for Transition to Nesting on Electricity Poles in the White Stork Ciconia ciconia
The process of transition from nesting on trees to electricity poles has been observed over the last decades in many European populations of the White Stork Ciconia ciconia, but the direct mechanisms
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.
Impact of Supplementary Feeding on Reproductive Success of White Storks
TLDR
The data suggest that supplementary feeding increases fledgling populations which may be a tool to attenuate population losses caused by factors such as habitat deterioration or unfavorable conditions in wintering habitats.
Factors determining presence of passerines breeding within White Stork Ciconia ciconia nests
TLDR
It is shown that White Stork nests are favorable nesting sites for passerines, as they are well insulated and provide an anti-predatory shield.
Reducing death by electrocution of the white stork Ciconia ciconia
Anthropogenic changes have strongly influenced the biodiversity of Europe. In the last 50 years electric power-line networks have become a conspicuous part of the European landscape, and have
Possible effects of electromagnetic field on White Storks Ciconia ciconia breeding on low-voltage electricity line poles
In this study, we analyzed the breeding success of the White Stork (Ciconia ciconia) in nests built on poles of low-voltage overhead electricity lines (OEL). Many previously conducted studies have

House sparrows benefit from the conservation of white storks
TLDR
It is shown that protecting one species can have valuable, although unplanned, benefits to another species of conservation interest, the house sparrow, as shown by sparrow density within stork nests.
CHOICE OF NEST PLATFORM MATERIAL FOR THE WHITE STORK (CICONIA CICONIA)
Nesting sites of the white stork, Ciconia ciconia (L. 1758), on low- and medium-voltage power poles are a common problem throughout Europe (Zupke, 1975; Fiedler and Wissner, 1980), including in the
Uphill shifts in the distribution of the white stork Ciconia ciconia in southern Poland: the importance of nest quality
The aim of this paper is to explain the altitudinal changes that have occurred during the 20th century to the white stork distribution in the Podhale region of the uplands of the Tatra mountains,
Age and breeding success related to nest position in a White stork Ciconia ciconia colony
TLDR
The scarce predation and the lack of human disturbance in the study colony could explain the absence of differences in breeding success between different nest positions within the colony.
Nest‐site fidelity and breeding success in White Stork Ciconia ciconia
TLDR
It is shown that pairs with higher fidelity rates also have lower failure rates, and that breeding failure and productivity in the previous season influenced the frequency of nest change in the following season.
Bird nesting on electric power supports in northwestern Spain
Abstract Use of electric power poles as nesting supports by birds was surveyed in the northern Spanish plateau, a deforested and nest-site sparse area. A total of 4336 poles of five different designs
Is the reintroduced white stork (Ciconia ciconia) population in Switzerland self-sustainable?
TLDR
The growth of the white stork population was largely favoured by the high adult survival which more than compensates for the low fledging success, and the population growth rate was positive, indicating that the population is self-sustainable at the moment.
SEX-RELATED NATAL DISPERSAL OF WHITE STORKS (CICONIA CICONIA) IN POLAND: HOW FAR AND WHERE TO?
TLDR
It is suggested that when returning from winter sites in the southeast, young White Storks settle before they reach their presumed migratory target in the vicinity of the natal site, only possible if, in spite of a relatively high population density, many breeding areas and potential nesting sites remain vacant.
Effect of nest microclimate on effective endothermy in White Stork Ciconia ciconia nestlings
TLDR
It is concluded that the microclimate of the nest influences nestling thermoregulation and may help to advance the age of effective endothermy of white Storks.
