Brown bear
The Eurasian brown bear (Ursus arctos arctos) is one of the most common subspecies of the brown bear and is found in much of Eurasia. It is also known as the European brown bear, common brown bear, common bear, and colloquially by many other names.
Western capercaillie
The western capercaillie (Tetrao urogallus), also known as the wood grouse, heather cock, or just capercaillie, is a member of the grouse family and its largest member. The largest known specimen, recorded in captivity, had a weight of 7.2 kilograms (16 pounds). Found across Europe and the Palearctic, this ground-living forest bird is renowned for its mating display.
Black Grouse
The black grouse or blackgame or blackcock (Lyrurus tetrix) is a large game bird in the grouse family. It is a sedentary species, breeding across the Palearctic in moorland and bog areas near to woodland, mostly boreal. The black grouse is closely related to the Caucasian grouse.
Hoopoe
Hoopoes are colourful birds found across Africa, Asia, and Europe, notable for their distinctive "crown" of feathers. Three living and one extinct species are recognised, though for many years all of the extant species were lumped as a single species—Upupa epops. In fact, some taxonomists still consider all three species conspecific. Some authorities also keep the African and Eurasian hoopoe together but split the Madagascar hoopoe.
Common cuckoo
The common cuckoo (Cuculus canorus) is a member of the cuckoo order of birds, Cuculiformes, which includes the roadrunners, the anis and the coucals. This species is a widespread summer migrant to Europe and Asia, and winters in Africa. It is a brood parasite, which means it lays eggs in the nests of other bird species, particularly of dunnocks, meadow pipits, and reed warblers. Although its eggs are larger than those of its hosts, the eggs in each type of host nest resemble the host's eggs. The adult is a mimic, in its case of the sparrowhawk; since that species is a predator, the mimicry gives the female time to lay her eggs without being seen to do so.
Bee-eater
The bee-eaters are a group of near passerine birds in the family Meropidae, containing three genera and twenty-seven species. Most species are found in Africa and Asia, with a few in southern Europe, Australia, and New Guinea. They are characterised by richly coloured plumage, slender bodies, and usually elongated central tail feathers. All have long downturned bills and medium to long wings, which may be pointed or round. Male and female plumages are usually similar.
Wallcreeper
The wallcreeper (Tichodroma muraria) is a small passerine bird found throughout the high mountains of the Palearctic from southern Europe to central China. It is the only extant member of both the genus Tichodroma and the family Tichodromidae.
Ibex
An ibex (plural ibex, ibexes or ibices) is any of several species of wild mountain goat (genus Capra), distinguished by the male's large recurved horns, which are transversely ridged in front. Ibex are found in Eurasia, North Africa, and East Africa.
Little owl
The little owl (Athene noctua) is a bird that inhabits much of the temperate and warmer parts of Europe, the Palearctic east to Korea, and North Africa. It was introduced into Britain at the end of the nineteenth century and into the South Island of New Zealand in the early twentieth century. This owl is a member of the typical or true owl family, Strigidae, which contains most species of owl, the other grouping being the barn owls, Tytonidae.
Three-toed woodpecker
The three-toed woodpecker (Picoides Tridactylus) is a medium-sized woodpecker that is found from Northern Europe across northern Asia to Japan. The Eurasian three-toed woodpecker was formally described in 1758 by the Swedish naturalist Carl Linnaeus in the tenth edition of his Systema Naturae.

Fotonatur is highly committed to conservation, we are working on various biodiversity projects.

  • Our guides are all member of DOPPS-Birdlife Slovenia, which is an independent and non-profit Slovenian nature conservation and ornithological organisation, acting in the public interest of nature conservation, environment protection and research. As a member we all do participate in several projects in a way to help improve natural habitats;
  • We already have Installed over 140 nest-boxes for different bird species, Ural Owl, Little owl, Hoopoe, little forest birds, Kestrel etc.;
  • We manage and clean Bee-eater breeding walls;
  • Spend considerable time and resources to create feeding habitat for birds;

In the future we are looking forward to contributed and participated in several projects which are helping the environment.

We will keep on working on environmental projects and in most help birds as we are doing that already. We do understand strong notice to take care of nature. In 2 years time we hope that we will be dealing with a parallel project which will work only on conservation.

    We spent the best part of a week with Ales and his guides, the scenery the photography and the hospitality where fabulous. Could fault the organisation from being picked up by Ales tothe friendliness of out hosts at the accommodation. It was a trip I will never forget. I hope to be visiting again in the near future to see how the hides are developing. I would recommend to anyone.

    Ales and all of the guides treated us like Royalty and went out of their way to not only ensure the best chance of seeing many birds but were constantly adjusting arrangements to make sure we didnt miss out. The food was sensational and reinforced what a delight it is to travel the back roads of Slovenia where mountains of fresh handmade delights await the traveller. Ales in particular was in constant contact to make sure everything was going well. We could not have chosen a better group to organise our specialised tour. In the end we managed to see 105 species of birds including some rarities such as the black grouse and three toed woodpecker over the 5 days which ended with a unique experience of being able to share our breakfast spot in the Italian mountains with a flock of 50 Ibex . Unforgettable Well done and thank you
