Birding in Turkey

 Birding - Turkey Birding enthusists are well aware that Turkey is situated where two main routes of mass bird migration occur. Twice each year the country's land and water habitats offer excellent conditions for migrating birds as well as those who breed in Turkey. With over 800,000 square kilometers surrounded on three sides by seas, Turkey serves as a bridge between three continents. A large variety of climatic areas co-exist due to the topography with the northern belt of humid forest contrasting with the arid areas of the country. The north being home to the rare White-backed Woodpecker, Greenish Warbler and Semi-collared Flycatcher. The Mediterranean coast hosts more than half of the world population of Rüppell’s Warbler, Olive-tree Warbler, the near-endemic Krueper’s Nuthatch, Masked Shrike and the Cretzschmar's Bunting. The exquisite scenery of the high mountains are accentuated with the presence of the Caspian Snowcock, Alpine and Radde’s Accentor and Red-fronted Serin.
