Description

Suomenoja's (or Finno) bird pools were created as a result of human activity in the former Finnoonlahti Bay. The pools provide nesting environment for many bird species – including some rarities within Finland and the EU. The symbol of the area is the Black-headed Gull. The area hosts the largest gull community in Southern Finland (estimated at 3,700 pairs) and the second largest in Finland. Other birds you can see here are Slavonian Grebe (Horned Grebe), Thrush Nightingale, Common Goldeneye, Sedge Warbler and Wood Sandpiper. And many more, see the birslist below.
