The lush wetlands of the Danube delta are ideal for bird nesting. Aside from plenty of local birds who inhabit the Delta year-round, the area annually sees millions of migratory birds. Birdwatchers travel here to see various species of pelicans, in particular, there are 3,500 pairs of white pelicans and nearly 150 pairs of dalmatian pelicans.
