Birdwatching in Athens: Arrival of the Subalpine Warblers
Subalpine Warblers are common and widespread summer visitors of middle and high altitude maquis scrub. First birds arrive in mid March and by the end of the month most of the territories are occupied by excited males that perform their characteristic "parachute" songs. In some areas, like Mt Penteli, north of Attica, and Mt Pastra in the northwest, they are literally found everywhere, being by far the most common warbler.
