Žuvintas, often referred to as "Bird Lake," is Lithuania's largest wetland and oldest nature reserve, and is recognized in the UNESCO World Network of Biosphere Reserves. Nestled in the lush landscapes near Marijampolė, this shallow lake and its encompassing wetlands provide sanctuary to 14 rare and protected bird species that breed here. Enthusiastic bird watchers can spot scarce species such as aquatic warblers, corncrakes, and Eurasian bitterns. For those less inclined to venture into the swamp, the lake surroundings offer an educational trail and observation towers. Each autumn, a festive gathering marks the departure of the migratory birds. The best time to visit Žuvintas for bird watching is between March and October.
