Some of the best birding in Europe is also found in Greece, with such renowned hotspots as Lake Kerkini, Dadia and the Evros Delta. We’ll bird the slopes of Mt. Parnassos, where birds like Coal Tit and the Mistle Thrush await, while the lower foothills should produce Blue Rock Thrush and White-eared Wheatear. Then it's off to Delphi, where we shouldn’t need the Oracle’s help to find the Rock Nuthatch, Cirl Bunting and Subalpine Warbler. A visit to Mt. Immitos should produce the highly localized Rueppell's Warbler, and Schinias National Park for our only chance to see Zitting Cisticola. Other hotspots include the Evros Delta, one of Europe’s most significant wetlands, and Lake Kerkini, where the Roller, Penduline Tit, Pygmy Cormorants and Dalmatian Pelicans will be some of our targets. Once back in Athens, we'll of course take time to look for the Hoopoe as we explore the grounds of the magnificent Akropolis.
