Austria's most rewarding birding destination is just a one hour drive from Vienna. The region east of lake Neusiedl (Neusiedler See), characterized by shallow salt lakes, pastures and meadows, offers the most diverse bird life you can find in the country.
Around 300 species of birds have been recorded in the area. Breeding species include specialities such as Eastern Imperial Eagle, Great Bustard, Pygmy Cormorant, Little Crake, Syrian Woodpecker,
Hoopoe, Bee-eater, Barred Warbler, Moustached Warbler and River Warbler - just to name a few.
The best times to visit are the migration periods April/May and August/September but you won't regret a visit at any time of the year!
I arrange full- and half-day birdwatching tours optionally including pickup and drop-off in Vienna, rental optics etc. Feel free to contact me!
