Only 15 km from Innsbruck, the Inzinger Gaisau is one of the last floodplains in the Inn Valley. It has ponds, woodlands, agricultural fields, wet meadows, reedbeds and borders the shores of the river Inn. This makes Inzinger Gaisau rich in habitats and therefore rich in birds.
Birds you can see here are Fieldfare, Willow Warbler, Goosander, Common Kingfisher, Green Sandpiper, Icterine Warbler Blackcap, Lesser Spotted Woodpecker and both Eurasian Treecreeper and Short-toed Treecreeper and many species of tits. In winter sometimes you can encounter large flocks of European Goldfinch, Siskin, and in late winter Brambling.
On the northern waters edge you have a good view on meadows and reedbeds. You can find Whinchat here and with some luck Hoopoe and Black Kite. On the pond you can see Little Grebe and different kinds of ducks. Around the reedbeds check for Water Rail, Reed Bunting, Reed Warbler, Great Reed Warbler and Sedge Warbler.
Only 20 minutes driving from Innsbruck. If you go to the western edge of the town Inzing and head down towards the river Inn, there is a little dirt track that will lead you down to the Inzinger Gaisau. Parking is along a little road (See the P on the map). Don't park your car on the field and don't drive past the "no entry" sign. Explore the area on foot from the parking.
