Birding in Vienna

The below map of birdwatching sites in Vienna is a free service to birdwatchers visiting the Austrian capital.


There are a lot of good birds to find within the city limits; sought-after species such as Grey-headed Woodpecker, Middle Spotted Woodpecker, Syrian Woodpecker, Little Bittern, Red-breasted Flycatcher, River Warbler and White-tailed Eagle all do occur in Vienna; Eastern Imperial Eagle and Saker Falcon are seen occasionally on the outskirts of the city. The Viennese team at the Austrian Birdrace regularly scores more than 95 species in 24 hours!

Spots along river Danube also prove to be good for vagrants on a regular basis: Yellow-billed Diver (2014), Great Northern Diver (1998, 2013), Little Auk (1995), Pomarine Skua (2010), Ring-necked Duck (2008), Greater Spotted Eagle (1991), Ring-billed Gull (1998), Shorelark (1987) and Citrine Wagtail (2003) have all been seen in the city, just to name the very best!
