Dalmatian Pelicans could land on your desktop in January 01/03/2014

Two Dalmatian Pelicans could land on the desktop of your computer in January. This is possible only if you choose the untraditional calendar for 2014 offered by the project “Life for the Bourgas Lakes”, implemented by Bulgarian Society for the Protection of Birds.
The monitor of your computer could be decorated with the picture of two Dalmatian Pelicans made by Bogdan Boev. These emblematic birds for Bourgas mark the beginning of the year because they could be observed in the sky over the city even in winter contrary to their mates Great White Pelicans.
This picture, created especially for desktop could be downloaded in suitable resolution from the project website: http://burgaslakes.org/details/Novini/Ptitsite-ot-burgaskite-ezera-na-vashiya-desktop-prez-2014-g-/node/79/subnode/713/.
Similar pictures of the same author are selected for all the months with the exception of August when on the desktops will land the Spoonbill captured on the picture of Ivailo Zafirov. Bogdan Boev is a professional basketball player from “Chernomorets”, the official team of Bourgas. He is equally skillful playing with the ball and making pictures with the camera.
At the end of each month we will inform you about the picture for the next month. It will be available on the website burgaslakes.org, section “News” in the last day of the month. You will meet Pygmy Cormorant, Squacco Heron, well known Pied Avocets, as well as the elegant Stilts. Of course we present you some rare lake inhabitants like Black Stork and Eurasian Curlew.
There are 114 holidays and 242 work days. Every one of them you could enjoy the company of the fatherly inhabitants of the lakes. It is due to their existence the British site Rough guide awarded Bulgaria the eight place in top 10 destinations for 2014.
