Asia/Georgia-Caucasian Birding between Europe & Asia
Imagine a small country with an incredible wide variety of fantastic landscapes ranging from steppes through lakes & marshes till beautiful valleys up to impressive mountain ranges covered with carpets of millions of stunning wildflowers.
What is more this area is full with superb bird-watching possibilities, including many rarities and even local endemic species. Despite the fact that the Greater Caucasus is much higher than the European Alps with a good timing and careful selection of visited areas we always search and find birds without strenuous hikes.
Wtih a good timing and excellent local knowledge we have a good chance to see Caucasian Snowcock, Caucasian Black Grouse, Guldenstadt's Redstart, Great Rosefinch, Mountain Chiffchaff, Wallcreeper, Lammergeier, Shore Lark (penicillata race) and many more in the hilly region.
While at a completely different lower and drier habitat we will look for Black– headed Bunting, Ortolan Bunting, Rose–coloured Starling, Isabelline Wheatear, Pied Wheatear, Orphean Warbler, Spanish Sparrow, Long–legged Buzzard, Lesser Kestrel, Black Francolin, Chukar, Rufus-tailed Scrub-Robin, White-throated Robin, Finch's Wheatear, Red-tailed Wheatear, Blue Rock Thrush, Rock Nuthatch, Woodchat Shrike, Rock Sparrow and many more.
