Texel bird island
Texel is an exceptional bird island. Hundreds of species can be found here and, regularly, rare species from the endangered species list have been spotted. That makes Texel popular with ornithologists and birdwatchers. You will see them in several places, mostly half hidden behind enormous telephoto lenses. Do you know why there are so many birds on Texel?
Conveniently located on the migratory routes
Texel is for many birds an ideal place for a layover or to breed. Many birds dislike flying over the open sea and in their yearly migration follow the coastline of North-western Europe as much as possible. With the nutrient-rich Wadden area next to Texel it is a perfect place to refuel for the far, exhausting journey. Furthermore, several nature areas are closed during breeding season to make sure the breeding birds can nest in peace and natural enemies like the fox are absent.
You can watch birds almost anywhere, even during breeding season. Bird observatories can be found in various spots or, along interesting bird areas, screens are placed with peepholes offering a great view on breeding or foraging birds. A comprehensive overview with all bird observatories can be found on www.vogelkijkhut.nl. Here you will also find information about the accessibility of the viewing point. Also nice: the observations are mentioned per bird watching hut.
