(17) Stork.--The LXX. give "heron," but Dr. Tristram has shown that there is no need to prefer "heron" here, on account of "the nesting in fir trees," since if near its feeding-grounds the stork readily selects a fir as the tallest and most convenient tree for its nest (Nat. Hist. of the Bible, p. 244).

"The eagle and the stork

On cliffs and cedar-tops their eyries build."--MILTON.

Verse 17. - Wherein the birds make their nests (comp. above, ver. 10). As for the stork, the fir trees are her house. Again, God's care for the animal creation is in the psalmist's mind. As the grass is "caused to grow for the cattle" (ver. 14), so trees - even the grandest - are partly intended for the birds.
