A Common Sight on the Camino in Spring

Stock's nest are a common sight along the camino during spring and summer. They are migratory birds and probably spend the winter down in Africa. They build their nest in high places for security, sometimes dangerously on top of electric towers.

Most of the time, they end up on top of church towers, like the one below with 5 nests. That was the most number of nests that I have seen on just one structure.

A chapel in a small town after Leon.
