The Common Kingfisher is Germany’s “Bird of the year” 2009
NABU (BirdLife in Germany) and their Bavarian partner – Landesbund für Vogelschutz (LBV) – have nominated Common Kingfisher Alcedo atthis as their Bird of the Year 2009. The aim of this very popular initiative is to focus peoples attention on a particular species and its habitat. NABU started nominating the ‘Bird of the Year’ in 1971. The first one was Peregrine Falcon Falco peregrinus, which, thanks to this and many other conservation projects, is no longer on the Red List of threatened birds in Germany.
