REPORT OF A BIRDING TRIP TO THE SOUTHERN AND EASTERN PARTS OF TURKEY
A SYSTEMATIC LIST
Included is a comprehensive description of the places visited during our trip. Per place visited, the following notes are presented:
Here our target species are listed. These might not be your sub-zero species, though.
Here the other cool species are listed. The four of us have already seen these during other trips or as rarities in The Netherlands, but we still get thrilled seeing these!
Other birds observed. Most might not be of interest to some readers, but they are included to give a total view of the species present. In The Netherlands we have seen these often, at least.
NOTES ON THE AREA
Since some areas have not properly been described before, I made an effort here. Also, additions and corrections to the literature used are included here.
NOTES ON ACCOMODATION
A small tip on where to stay in the area if some sleep in needed.
This listing of the species is not always complete, though I have tried so. Names of the birds are according Duivendijk, N. van, Dutch Birding Kenmerkengids, 2002.
