Bird Watching in Chania

The island of Crete has an extraordinary reservoir of natural wildlife, including birds. There is no need to visit designated sites in order to observe many species. Spring and autumn are ideal to observe birds on their migratory routes to and from Africa and other parts of Europe, while the rainfall in winter encourages the presence of more species along streams and rivers.

Here’s a list on the birds of Crete and their photos:

One of only two freshwater lakes on the entire island, Lake Agia is a manmade lake in the Northwest of Crete.
