With approximately 8,000 species of plants, 197 species of mammals, and 535 species of birds Iran is one of the most important countries in the Middle East and Western Asia for conservation of biological diversity and remarkably scenic landscapes.

The focus will be on such highly restricted-range species as Caspian Tit, Black-headed Penduline Tit, Little Grebe, Little Bittern, Western Marsh Harrier, Common Moorhen, Common Kingfisher, and Moustached, Eurasian (or European) Reed and Great Reed Warblers.

Also high altitude species such as Caspian Snowcock, Radde’s Accentor, Red-tailed Wheatear , Plain Leaf Warbler, Red-fronted Serin, Crimson-winged Finch, Grey-necked Bunting and, with a lot of luck, White-winged Grosbeak.
