Southern Zakynthos (Zante) and the islands Strofades represent a very important passage and stop for many immigratory birds, the most common being the turtledoves (Streptopelia turtur).

In the islands Strofades exists a colony of the Atremides (Calonectris diomedea).

We also meet several species of buzzards (Falco eleonorae, Falco subbuteo), species of seabirds (Calonectris diomedea, Puffinus puffinus), swans, hoopoes, swallows, gulls etc.
