Morocco: The Storks and Cats of Chellah (Rabat)

As I said in the previous post, I expected to see cats in Morocco. Well, everywhere to be exact! But storks? I haven't even seen them in person before this day and so seeing so many nesting in Chellah was such a treat.

Is that an egg precariously hanging on the side of the nest?

The resident cats had made the visit to Chellah even more memorable. Although these cats are not friendly to strangers.

  1. That does look like an egg!! The cats look lean and hungry.

  2. I love all the felines. And what a massive nest!

  3. Your Chellah storks are prettier than Florida wood storks -- I'm envious ;>). But their nests look very much like ours -- big and messy! That IS an egg, wow! That's an amazing camera catch.

    And you have amazing kitty karma -- you sure do find them everywhere you go!

  4. Very creative photography of the storks and cats ~ delightful ~ thanks,

    Happy Weekend ahead ~ ^_^

  5. Loved the storks! We don't the the opportunity to experience them in Pennsylvania. Very interesting!

  6. I've never actually seen a stork, though I would like to.
    Thanks for sharing at

  7. Love the storks more than the cats.

  8. Amazing shots of the storks and cute cats.

  9. Interesting combination of feathers and fur along your journey. With birds bigger than the lean cats, a dangling egg could be their best and only snack.

  10. Between the cats and that huge nest tjos becomes a very impressive post.

  11. Great shots of birds and cats.

  12. Gorgeous photos of the birds and cats! I haven't even seen storks in person.

    Thanks for your sweet congratulations on the Mother's Day! I am glad you like the photo!
    Wishing you and yours a nice week ahead.

  13. So many cool critters in this post!

  14. I've never seen a story before. they are beautiful and the kitties are so pretty.

  15. Seeing the storks for the first time.Stray cats look good.
