The Park occupies 0,1% of Italy’s surface, but it hosts 116 nesting bird species, equal to almost half of all the species reproducing in our Country. 14 species of diurnal birds of prey (including 10 couples of golden eagles) and 6 nocturnal species of birds of prey (from the huge Eurasian eagle-owl to the small Eurasian pygmy owl). The Dolomiti Bellunesi are the only National Park hosting all the alpine Galliformes species: Black grouse, Rock partridge, Western capercaillie, Rock ptarmigan. The Park’s forests host the black woodpecker, the grasslands host the rare corncrake and the Mis lake is one of the few places in Italy where the common merganser reproduces.
If you are passionate birdwatchers you cannot miss a visit to the Park!
