Birds of Bulgaria

IMG7044

Varied habitats (mostly untouched) account for the 402 bird species found...in a country a bit larger than Tennessee.

Bulgaria is the third largest country in south-eastern Europe with an estimated 7.7 million people.

The climate is temperate overall.

The terrain is mostly mountainous reaching 2,925 m (9600 ft) with a 378 km (235 mi) Black Sea coastline.

Our visit in early Sept. was made enjoyable by the wonderful climate and wonderful people.

However, the seemingly unconrolled resort development is worrisome.

I don't ask for the meaning of the song of a bird or the rising of the sun on a misty morning. There they are, and they are beautiful.
