My family and I spent a day birding in and around Athens with Nikos. We have younger children so we weren't sure how the kids would do, but Nikos was very patient, giving us plenty of time to take turns watching the birds at each location while the kids played. Nikos is very knowledgeable in the birds of Greece and in excellent locations to see them. We did our birding tour in late February, and identified 51 birds, many of which were new for us. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour. It was an experience we couldn't have had without Nikos' knowledge of the Athens area and its birds.

This was an extraordinary experience - really a lot of fun birding with Antony Tsaknakis. Great knowledge of birds and where to find them plus unbelievable enthusiasm and tenacity, and patience and generosity. He was very adaptable and flexible and we got MANY good photos and some really great ones. Everything worked out just as he said it would; totally reliable and trustworthy.

Nikos picked us up at our hotel at 8am sharp, and within 30-40 minutes we were birding on the hills above Athens. Here we saw Chukar, W Rock Nuthatch & Red Backed Shrike. Later we found a posing Chukar by the roadside that allowed us to approach closely before being scared off by a cyclist. Down the hill we were able to pick up Cirl Bunting, before heading off to Schinias National Park for Ferruginous Duck & Pygmy Cormorant. The rest of the day we moved around the wilder areas of the park, before grabbing a bite to eat, and then heading back to Athens. All in all a good days birding at a pretty unfavourable time of year, 45 species and 4 lifers with an excellant birder.

After a conference in Athens in early October, I knew I would have a free day before my 5 pm flight home. So I wrote to Birding in Greece requesting a guide for the day, pointing out that I was relatively new to birding, had never gone birding in Greece, and especially liked shorebirds. Nikos picked me up from my hotel in Athens, and in 15 minutes we were birding on Mt. Hymettos. For the next 6 hours, at 5 locations, I saw the following species (many additions to my life-list): Kingfisher, Teal, Garganey, Ferruginous Duck, Chukar Partridge, Little Grebe, Great Cormorant, Pygmy Cormorant, Bittern, Squacco Heron, Little Egret, Grey Heron, Purple Heron, Western Marsh Harrier, Common Kestrel, Common Moorhen, Eurasian Coot, Common Ringed Plover, Little Stint, Dunlin, Common Redshank, Eurasian Collared Dove, Crested Lark, Barn Swallow, Common House Martin, White Wagtail, Meadow Pipit, European Robin, European Stonechat, Blue Rock Thrush, Blackcap, Spotted Flycatcher, Great Tit, Western Rock Nuthatch, Red-backed Shrike, Eurasian Jay, Common Magpie, Carion Crow, House Sparrow, Common Chaffinch, Cirl Bunting, and Little Owl. Nikos then dropped me off at the airport. It was a fantastic day--and a real bargain, considering what I saved on taxi fare to the airport (and a light lunch, Nikos paid for).

We spent a day with Antonis birding around Athens. He is an excellent birder and was also able to incorporate photography into our experience. He took us to four different habitats and we saw a wide variety of birds. It was very interesting to see birds that are not here in the US. Antonis also gave us some good tips for places we were going later in our trip - and they were very helpful. If you are interested in photography along with your birding we would highly recommend Antonis.
