Over 199 species of birds populate the Reserve: spot them all.

Montepulciano Lake Natural Reserve, on the border between Tuscany and Umbria, is the perfect place for bird watching in Valdichiana Senese. The Reserve, not only hosts various fish species and plants, but also attracts numerous species of birds: over the years more than 199 species have been registered here, of which 92 are nesting species. In addition to water birds, the Reserve also attracts many species related to open environments. Among these it is possible to admire nesting birds of prey, such as the Lodolaio and the Kestrel of the falcon family, the Buzzard and the Black Kite; during winter other species join them, such as the Sparrow Hawk, the Peregrine Falcon and the Royal Harrier.
