Employing all your senses, with the naked eye or using field glasses, and in particular by listening carefully, discover the various species of birds that nest in or pass through Slovenia's Alps. Trboje Lake between Šenčur and Kranj provides home - on permanent and temporary bases - to some 130 bird species; indeed, this lake is a genuine classroom in nature. You can also familiarise yourself with ornithological habitats in the vicinity of gravel pits, riverside groves and even rapids.
The Triglav National Park is a place where an experienced eye can spot a golden eagle, rock ptarmigan, griffon vulture and, if you are lucky enough or in the company of a guide, you may even hear the western capercaillie (wood grouse). You may also take a day-long ornithological trip from Bohinj – they are organised in the context of the annual Wild Flower Festival.
