Near Yeshilhizar in Cappadoccia, this is one of the oddest places you will expect to find a flamingo. This is a great place for finding larks and other grassland birds. There was a wolf pelt in the hotel, so in theory there are wolves here as well.



3/23/2006: A one day stay in this area to go see the flamingos and other birds. Met up with a French Birder named Christian.
