There’s nothing better than getting in tune with nature by observing animals in their habitat. One of the ways one can do this is through bird watching. While it’s not necessarily an active or adventurous thing to do while traveling, birding can be quite thrilling for any wildlife lover, especially when you see something unexpected. Even though large portions of the country are arid to semi-arid, Iran possesses a very rich and diverse bird fauna; over 490 species are known to have occurred.
