Abstract

The brood size of the White Stork (Ciconia ciconia) was investigated at 30 localities within the breeding range of the species in Greece in 1993, 1994 and 1995. These localities were grouped in four major habitat types: river, lake, delta and dry habitat (lacking water bodies nearby). Brood size groups of 1, 2, and 5 nestlings (less common) and 3-4 nestlings (common) for all years and major habitats were compared. No significant spatial or temporal differences in the brood sizes were found. The mean brood size of the White Stork in Greece was among the highest in Europe attributable to favorable feeding conditions associated with cultivations.
