Scops Owl

 

 

A mini-break with the primary goal of tracking down the island's two endemic birds, namely Cyprus Warbler and Cyprus Pied Wheatear. However, with a range of other potential species including Eleonora's Falcon, Great Spotted Cuckoo, Cretzschmar's Bunting and Black Francolin, this four-day trip promised to be a rather nice outing in the sun.

Cyprus, List of Birds PDF Print E-mail
Written by Jos   

A total of 72 species were seen, including all of the target birds (i.e. the endemic Cyprus Warbler and Cyprus Pied Wheatear, along with the Cypriot race of Scops Owl, Great Spotted Cuckoo, Eleonora's Falcon and Cretzschmar's Bunting). Naturally, a trip timed to coincide with the migrations seasons would produce a far higher total number of species, but overall I feel this was a very good total for a short summer break.
