ROMANIA - DANUBE DELTA
This was my second trip to the Danube Delta. A small group of us stayed in a remote Pension in the northern part of the Delta and went out each day in a camouflaged boat. That enabled us to get quite close to birds without disturbing them. Below is a selection of images taken in the Delta and in a hilly area to the west.
European Bee Eater
The Delta contains a variety of Heron species, and the gallery below has a selection of images of
Squacco Herons, Purple Herons, and Great White Egrets
Black -throated & Red-throated Grebes
These species are reasonably common in the Delta, and there are also some Great-crested Grebes. The
images of the Red-throated Grebes show the adult feeding young with the lava of the
Great Diving Beetle, a popular source of food for several species.
