It is convenient that a stork is a large bird, and that we do know
to build working ornithopters. SO, the lighter-weight is a stork-
shaped ornithopter (say built from carbon-fiber parts), the more it
can carry. Such as, of course, a baby
born in a hospital.

||I will agree that this Idea is similar to the linked one, but
the focus here is on (A) ornithopters and (B) delivery of
more things than just babies. Neither of those seem to
have been mentioned in the linked Idea.
||Leonardo Da Vinci drew ideas for ornithopters.
||Well, if someone ever does bake delivery by drone I agree
that it would be better if they looked like flying storks. [+]
||Around here you might dress them up as Blue Herons to fit
in with the local bird population.
