Färnebofjärden National Park
Over one hundred bird species nest here regularly, and there are unusually large populations of several red-listed (i.e. endangered) species. All seven species of Swedish woodpecker nest in the area, as do several species of owl. Among the latter is the Ural owl, the 20-25 pairs of which probably comprise the largest local population in the country.
In addition, there are large populations of woodland game birds, especially black grouse, capercaillie and hazelhen. Among the wetland and water birds present are the crane, Arctic loon, golden plover, white-tailed eagle and osprey. With some 15-20 pairs in the area, the osprey is one of the most populous of these species.
Another valuable feature of Färnebofjärden from the standpoint of ornithology is its function as a resting place. Every year, as many as 1000 whooper swans gather on the first ice-free patches of water, along with other species. Of the mammals, there are large populations of elk (moose), roe deer, mountain hare and pine marten. Lynxes are frequently present, and there is probably a small population of otters, as well. During the late 1980s, beavers have also established themselves in the area.
