Switzerland's varied landscape makes it an excellent birding destination. It has a large number of lakes with aquatic birds, wetlands with herons and storks, and of course the Swiss Alps. The Cuckoo is probably the most well-known Swiss bird and was once abundant all over the country. Altogether, about 200 different species of birds breed in Switzerland. The best time to see them is during spring​ and summer.
