Uzbekistan is located in the heart of the Central Asia. Our country is the most densely populated state in the Central Asian region. The unique nature of Uzbekistan has always attracted scientists, travelers and simply nature-lovers. The animals and plants that inhabit Uzbekistan represent the rich and varied biodiversity. Along with the cultural and historical heritage, Uzbekistan arouses interest for its wildlife, especially for birds. The fact that Uzbekistan lies on the crossing of the winter migration routs of birds from Western Siberia and Kazakhstan to Caspian region, Iran, India and Pakistan makes its avifauna really unique. More than 460 avian species can be found in our country. More than 265 species are nesting here. Among them there are 31 species which are critically endangered
