Lakes are safe havens for wild animals and Lake Burdur in Turkey is no exception. Being on a key migration route of birds, Lake Burdur is a special place, particularly for waterbirds. More than 100,000 waterbirds rest around the lake, which does not freeze during winter due to its salty alkaline water. The most famous winter visitor is the White-headed duck. As a worldwide endangered species, half of the White-headed ducks spend the winter here. They cross thousands of kilometers to come here and are the symbol of Burdur. But this rare species’ days at Lake Burdur could be numbered.
