The national bird of Germany is certainly the stork. Germany isn’t the only country to claim that their national bird is the stork though. Lithuania claims it as their national bird as well. Other countries that you may want to consider adding to your list of countries with national bird are; Ireland, Mongolia and the other countries in eastern Europe, Canada, Australia and the United States.
The National Bird of Ireland is the Emerald Dove, which is a rather common bird that is found all throughout Ireland. There are also a lot of other varieties such as the Black Tanager, the Black Backed teal, the White-crowned sparrow, the Grey-crowned funnest, the Grey-crowned wren and the Black-cheeked spoon feeder birds. These birds are all found in Ireland. The list doesn’t end there, as there are many more varieties of birds that make up the German National Bird List.
If you are looking for an eagle in Germany then you will want to take a look at the following birds. The German Eider, the Black-Headed Eagle, the Black Ratling and the Black Redstart all make their homes in the states of Texas, Oklahoma and Missouri. Of course, if you are looking for an eagle in Germany and can’t take a look at any of the above then you need to know that you have a good luck charm hanging around which is the Gelding Spade. It has the most feathers of any spade on earth and was originally bred in the Netherlands and is only now becoming widely sought after in America and Europe.
Spain National Bird
It’s always a delight to see the Spanish National Bird, the Black-Crowned Bush Duck, in the wild and open expanses of the Costa Blanca, especially in the months of May, June, July and August. This is a breeding bird that is quite rare and the odds are it won’t be back in the area for a few years, so it makes it all the more special when you do spot it. It is estimated that only about one hundred are alive in the wild, which makes it a real rarity to see and experience. It is also home to over a hundred other species that can be found in Spain, but it has been found to be the most colourful, which is what makes it such a delightful site to visit.
The Black-Crowned Bush Duck is the only bird in the world to have three different subspecies, which means they have been split into three separate groups. This is quite an achievement as it shows just how unique this bird really is. It is said to be the largest duck in the world, with a weight of around seven and a half pounds. They have large flanks that are covered with feathers and its head and neck are covered with a long bill. Its tail is also very long.
If you love birds and you are visiting Spain, then you will not regret seeing the Costa Blanca national park. Although it is not the easiest bird watching location, as there are literally hundreds of species to be seen, it does offer some magnificent opportunities. You will find the Rufus with its characteristic black and white bills and the Greater Flamingos with their orange and red tints on their black heads. A little effort is really required to view them as they will not come within eyesight from any tree or bush. Also, the Macaws have long beaks that stick out from their black and orange body colours and the Ibex that love to take baths with humans will be seen in the Ribera de San Carlos national park.
