Sardinia island is in the middle of the Mediterranean and many birds live here or stop during their migrations, finding favorable conditions to feed themselves and nesting.
The 5 Best
Gulls are typically medium to large, usually gray or white, often with black markings on the head or wings and webbed feet. They typically have harsh wailing or squawking calls. Their food often includes crabs and small fish. They are great fliers and you can see them flying everywhere every day.
2. Pink Flamingo
The most common of the plumage is pinkish-white, but the wing coverts are red and the flight feathers are black and the legs are entirely pink. The call is a goose-like honking. It resides in mudflats and shallow coastal lagoons with salt water, sucking water through its bill and filters out small shrimp, seeds, algae, and mollusks.
These birds fly with stiff wings very close to the water “shearing” the tips of waves, to move across wavefronts with the minimum of active flight. They feed on fish, squid, and similar seafood. Their primary feeding technique is diving, with some species diving to depths of 70 m.
Cormorants are medium-to-large birds, the majority of species have dark feathers. The bill is long, thin and hooked. Their feet are like fins. All species are fish-eaters. They are excellent divers, underwater they propel themselves with their feet with help from their wings, diving as deep as 45 meters.
The Herons have long legs and long beaks. You can easily see them in humid areas but sometimes we meet them in the sea as well. Although herons resemble birds in some other families, such as the storks and cranes, they differ from these in flying with their necks retracted, not outstretched.
