The Birds of Turkey’s Lake Van (27 photos)

Turkey’s Lake Van basin is home to hundreds of bird species throughout the year, both resident and migratory. Lake Van is the largest body of water in Turkey, and has protected wetlands set aside for wildlife. Photographers with the Anadolu Agency have documented quite a few of these fine feathered creatures in and around this lake in recent years, and I’ve collected a few of their images below.
