Nile Delta flooded savanna

WWF Abstract

For about a billion birds that fly from Europe to Africa each fall, the Nile Delta is a welcome sight. Storks, cranes, eagles, and many other migratory birds feed and rest in the lakes and lagoons around the delta, gathering energy for the remainder of their long journey. In the spring, many of these same birds return on their way back north. For this reason, the Nile Delta is an extremely important habitat for the biodiversity of not just Egypt but for much of the world.
