The Venice port and park Biennale may seem like urban areas but really they are a great place for unusal birds.

The Venice port and park Biennale are a great place for migratory and wintering birds, as well as interesting breeding birds. In the park Biennale you can see species such as Eurasian Scops OwlHawfinch and Italian Sparrow. The migratory and wintering birds you can spot in the port include Black-throated Diver (Arctic Loon)Black-necked Grebe and Red-breasted Merganser. You can see sereval gull species such as Mediterranean Gull and even the occasional Ring-billed Gull.



To get to Venice you have to either take the boat or train ride towards the city. If you want to take the boat to the city you have to go and park in the airport car park, the actual crossing can be extremely hot in summer but is good for birds such as Sandwich TernAvocetEurasian Spoonbill and Common Shelduck. The train ride is not as hot and shorter.
