The heronries are located in small woodlands surrounded by rice-fields, on the west Padana plain, north-west of the town of Novara. The site was listed in the previous pan-European IBA inventory (Grimmett and Jones 1989) as subsite 4 of the IBA `Heronries in the catchment of the upper Po and Sesia Rivers' (former site IT005).
Two mixed heronries: Garzaia di Morghengo-San Bernardino, and Garzaia di Casaleggio.
