EAST AZARBAIJAN, (CHN) – Migration of aqueous b;"ds to aquatic spots of East Azerbaijan province has commenced. The Qarah Qeshlaq pond and Aras River coastlines are now host to North Asian b;"ds. As the weather gets colder in northern regions of Asia like Siberia and Kazakhstan, the;" native b;"ds migrate toward more southern areas. Due to its particular location en route of b;"ds’ migration, East Azerbaijan province provides them with cosy short-term accommodation. These b;"ds rest at the ponds and coastlines of the Aras River by mid-autumn and at “Quri Gol” and “Sakkiz Chay” by the icing season. Different species of geese, swans, aqueous b;"ds like herons and more than ten species of ducks are among the major population of the migrating b;"ds. The Quri Gol Pond is one of the international ponds of the Ramsar international site which is a b;"th place of rare species such as ducks and 92 other b;"ds. Migrant b;"ds will stay in the province’s aquatic reserves before getting colder when they will migrate to more southern regions like Majnoun islands, the Persian Gulf and the Nile River.
