Wildlife in Southern Norway
Norway - the somewhat peculiar country in northern Europe consists not only of mountains, fjords, salmon and oil, as many may think. According to Wikipedia, 44% of the country covered with forests and mountain plateaus. These areas are home to many species of wild animals and birds.
In 2002, 464 different bird species were recorded in the country. According to the new report, around 41,000 species are recorded in Norway. However, the report estimates that there are yet another 14,000 species in Norway - there is just no one who has registered them.
This is a very small selection of the kind of birds and animals one can find in Norway.
