Welcome to "Birds in Armenia"
This website was developed by Vasil Ananian and Chris Bradshaw and aims to provide basic information about the birds of Armenia and birding in the country. The idea for a website was first discussed in 2003, when we first met during a birding tour of the country. There seemed to be an obvious need for such a resource, and even now there are hardly any websites, specifically devoted to all the birds of Armenia (not just globally red-listed) and their habitats, and covering practical information for birders. Many people from abroad regularly contact us for such information, and we hope this website will at least partially fill this gap.
It took a long time to publish the first pages of this site. This was for a variety of reasons, including a major shortage of free time and the need to bring our knowledge of web design and construction up to date. Obviously, our pages lack the 'bells & whistles' that many web users are currently accustomed to, but our primary objective was to develop informative and easy to navigate pages. Nevertheless, the Birds in Armenia is still very much a work-in-progress and we hope it will be expanded and improved with time.
Please browse the site to find out more about the rich ornithological diversity to be found in this small Caucasian state.
