About these "rogue" goes a lot of legends. However, in reality it is not necessary to grant wild birds human characteristics: it is a normal natural selection, which always happens in nature. But to leave in the lurch stork course not. We will monitor the situation. And try to save the bird, beloved by all Belarusians.
