Birding Slovenia (May 2016)

A little late in posting, but it was such a spectacular day of birding, I didn’t want to miss posting this in at least the year it happened.

We arrived at in the port of Koper, Slovenia via the Cruise Ship, Celebrity Constellation.  Guide Tomaz Remzgar picked us up promptly from the port as soon as we arrived.  We found Tomaz via the “Birding Pal” web site.  Although the day was less than stellar for birding (very cold and wet), Tomaz with his friendly and cheerful attitude guided us into through woodland, fields and eventually to Kraski Rob where we had excellent views of the Subalpine Warbler and Blue Rock Thrush.

After Kraski Rob, he then took us to a beautiful Nature Reserve very close to the port.  This area of protection is very important to Slovenia as it is a preserved area right in the city.

Despite the poor weather for birding, we had an excellent day with Tomaz and overall saw 52 species of birds in Slovenia.

We would highly recommend Tomaz as an excellent guide for birding in Slovenia.  His contact information is on birding pal
