Max the stork is dead

Reported this morning that Max (Maxine) the stork that the Fribourg Natural History Museum has monitored since her birth has died in Spain at the age of 13 and a half. Due to the work of scavengers it wasn't possible to determine whether she died of old age or from hitting a nearby power line.

More info here:

Max holds the world record for the length of time to be monitored of any animal and raised 31 offspring during her life.

RIP, Max.

Re: Max the stork is dead

I never met Max in real life but he (correction: she) was responsible for bringing many babies to my neighbourhood.

RIP Max.
