BIRDS

PELICAN

The pelican as one of the biggest water birds who lives mainly in the hotter regions, stays only at the Large and Small Lake Prespa, organizing six month stay (April 15 - October 15) in flight composed of more than 1000 birds. The rest of the year it spends in the southern parts of the Earth. The spring arrival of these white birds with big beaks is not very remarkable, but during the autumn removal, they gather in flight and after an hour circulation above the Prespa Valley, They set off for their winter homes.

Pelicans don`t under the water, but only swim on the water surface. Thanks to its natural instinct they discover the shoals and flie in the target point. After that flight of cormorants fly in and driving the fish trought diving, they create the symbiosis - joint feeding. It is an interesting phenomenon, isn`t it?

SWANS

During the last twenty years there are swans on Lake Prespa, as well. It was not a case in he past. They come in spring or in autumn in flights composed of 4-8 birds staying for two - three months. In contrast to the pelicans, the swans could be domesticated mainly through feeding. Their grace surprasses the beauty of the long - Beaked pelican.
