Birdwatching in Franconia

On this website I want to show you the birdlife of Franconia, the northern part of the german province Bavaria. While its cultural assets attract many tourists year for year, its birding potential is nearly unknown so far, although many highly desired breeders can reliably be found here. There are mainly two reasons for that: On the one hand there certainly is a lack of information and on the other hand there aren’t many birdwatchers in Franconia.


Both I want to change with this website. Here I’ll present new birdwatching sites, up-to-date information on some sought-after species and current sightings on the blog.
