Rare opportunity to see one of the least seen species in the Western Palearctic

Birding Turkey - Brown Fish Owl Extension


The Brown Fish Owl is one of the most mysteries species in the Western Palearctic. Considered extinct in the region, it was rediscovered very recently when few pairs were located in some difficult to access gorges in Tarsus Mountain in Turkey. Amazingly, just a couple of years ago, by pure luck, few more pairs were found to breed at the cliffs of a large lake near the holiday resort of Antalya. Here, using one of the many boats we will be able to get close enough to get perfect views of probably the least seen species in this part of the world. On our first try here, in May 2013, we have seen 4 birds in one morning. If you are interested in this option, please ask us for full details.
