Birdwatching in Turkey 

In most countries, tulips are cultivated but in Eeastern Anatolia, Turkey, tulips grow wild. For two weeks in May, visitors are treated to one of natures wonders, as the whole area turns red with wild tulips. Also at this time, demoiselle cranes and bustards can be seen.

Turkey is in fact paradise for birdwatchers and the famous city of Istanbul lies beneath a key migration route for birds. The small wood eagle, snake eagle, falcon, bee falcon, hawk and stork are just some of the birds that can be observed.

The Turkish Nature Society is a non-profit organization aiming to conserve the natural treasures of Turkey and they have determined the rarest and the most beautiful natural sights in Turkey. Find out more about these wonders of nature in Turkey.
