According to European folklore, the stork is responsible for bringing babies to new parents. The legend is very ancient, but was popularized by a 19th-century Hans Christian Andersen story called The Storks. ... The babies would then be given to the mother or dropped down the chimney (sic!)
p.s. and a fine capture in your shot
