You are here: IntroductionRoutes and programsOrnithological Rarities of Central Moravia

Do you find the quiet rustling of wings to be a calming experience? Do you enjoy listening to the melodious singing of birds? Are you fascinated by the elegance of motion and flight? Central Moravia is home to a great number of ornithological rarities. The three-day program offers participants the opportunity to study birds in their natural environment: near ponds and lakes and in nature reserves.

Žebračka National Nature Reserve

The nature reserve has an area of 234.9 ha. Žebračka represents a unique remnant of the original extensive riparian forests of the Bečva River alluvial plain. The territory is valuable from both a botanical and zoological perspective. The reserve also has great ornithological importance as a crossroads of bird migration routes, as a nesting site and as a habitat for up to 75 species of birds. The site is also home to significant mollusc, amphibian and reptile communities.
