1) Phoenicopterus ruber. It lives in extensive shallow lakes or lagoons of salt or soda water, where it builds conical heaps of mud on which to lay its eggs. Length 125-145 cm, Wing-span 140-160 cm.
2) Egretta garzetta. It lives in marshes, shallow fresh and coastal waters, usually breeding in trees and near water.
Here, in lake Kerkini's eastern shore. The lake was formed in 1932, when a dam was built on Strymon river. It is the wildlife-richest habitat in Greece and one of the ten water-reserves protected by Ramsar Treaty.
