Birds of Cyprus.
Cyprus has a bird list of 369 species. This includes two endemic species, the Cyprus Pied Wheatear Oenanthe cypriaca and the Cyprus Warbler Sylvia melanothorax.
In addition there are four endemic subspecies: - Cyprus Scops Owl Otus scops cyprius, Coal Tit Parus ater cypriotes, Short-toed Treecreeper Certhia brachydactyla dorotheae and Jay Garrulus glandarius glaszneri.

Cyprus is on a north-south migration route and there are many birds in transit, some in vast flocks and some in small clusters.

These migrating birds may only rest for a few days to a week. March to May is the period of Northward migration and August to October the Southward.
