Birdwatching destinations in Armenia: Armash
Armash fish-farm was established in 1972 and became a refuge for huge number of waterbirds, including over 60 species, which disappeared from Lake Sevan due to decrease of water level and drainage of Gilli wetlands. It hosts globally endangered White-headed Duck, Marbled Teal, Ferruginous Pochard, as well as locally endangered White-tailed Lapwing, Black-winged Stilt, and Persian Bee-eater. Armash is becoming one of the most spectacular places in Armenia for birdwatching, as it combines variety of wetland and semi-desert habitats, and therefore provides ample opportunities on bird observations and making great photos. Since 2006 our group was able to open the place for birdwatchers, increasing its popularity and increasing its conservation value.
