Wintering raptors in Armenia

This winter we made different surveys on wintering birds of prey. In particular we carried out a research in Armenia together with Siranush Tumanyan from the Acopian Center for the Environment of the American University of Armenia (please click on the link to visit the website). We made some hundreds km of car transects, moreover we monitored wetlands, dumps and chicken factories of western Armenia. During the survey we observed 10 species of raptors and remarkable concentrations of Black Kites. On the pictures below: Black Kites, a Long-legged Buzzard and the researchers team.
