Hundreds of species of birds call the Danube Delta home at least from late Spring until mid-Fall. Bird-watchers do not need any equipment (although binoculars help), no license is required, and there are plenty of locations throughout the Danube Delta to watch fowl in their natural habitat. Most bird-watchers are lucky enough to spot Black Pelican colonies. Specialized tour operators will assure the most successful bird-watching trip to the Danube Delta.
