Birdwatching Tours in Cappadocia
Turkey is a unique place for watching birds considering the diversity of both migratory and non-migratory bird species. There are two major reasons for this abundance. Turkey's range of different ecosystems and it's position on bird's migratory routes.
Turkey has 7 geographical areas, each with it's own natural features, ecosystems, climate and wildlife. These include, arid steppe, deciduous and coniferous forests, mountains, coastal areas and more .So there are many opportunities for wild birds and other wildlife of all kinds.
Many birds which migrate between Europe and Africa each year, choose to fly via Turkey. Some of these, stay and breed here when many more just pass through. Therefore Spring and autumn offer opportunities to see the migrating masses. Even in the metropolis of Istanbul, migrating birds can be seen in significant numbers.
LiritaTours organizes only tailor made tours combined with in a suitable itinerary for groups one week to two weeks.
