On the wings of winter

In winter at the Parco del Mincio to spot flocks of migratory birds.

Winter has its own charming ways, specially for birdwatching enthusiasts who await its arrival.

The cold wind and crystalline landscape that is reminiscent of frail glasses bring out flocks of birds that seek a steadier food supply in humid marsh lands.

One of the best places to watch closely the behaviour of species that otherwise live elsewhere is the Mincio Park, a vast fluvial canal surrounded by moraine cliffs and streams that end up in Lakes and wetlands near vast cultivated fields. 

With the coming of the cold season this landscape is transformed by silver mists and earthlights that emerge from the water.
