Iceland 1-Portuguese favourites 1, celebration with birds


This football video is about Icelandic footballer Bjarnason’s goal in the Portugal vs Iceland 1-1 match at the Euro 2016 – 14/05/2016.

And it stayed one goal each. A success for Iceland, for the first time ever at European championships!

To celebrate, here this video about birds in Iceland.

The video says about itself:

Diverse bird habitats make Northeast Iceland the richest birding area in Iceland, in terms of number of species and abundance of birds. Nearly the entire European population of Barrow’s Goldeneye breeds here and nowhere else will you find higher density of the Gyr Falcon. The Northeast has the bulk of the Icelandic population of many species, such as Gadwall, Harlequin Duck, Common Scoter, Slavonian Grebe and Rock Ptarmigan.

And this video about birds in Portugal.
