Approximately 50 billion birds migrate every year. 5 billion of them are made between Europe and Asia.

For centuries, migratory birds have followed large water bodies along the narrowest point on land. Bird migration path determined by the shortest terrestrial connection passes through Turkey. Migratory birds who have to cross the sea prefer the narrowest spots such as the Bosphorus and the Dardanelles. While gliding over high mountains, they also use lower passages such as Arhavi and Borcka-Artvin and Belen-Hatay. In the spring migration, migrating birds who reach Hatay by following the African Rift valley extension continue to migrate towards the northeastern and northwestern directions, crossing the Bosphorus to northern Thrace and the Balkans, and the other migrating group reach the Caucasus and further north through Artvin. In the autumn migration, they return to Africa on the same route.
