Tannourine Cedar NR is part of the largest remaining cedar forest in Lebanon (www. moe.gov.lb/protectedareas) and is situated on the western flanks of the Mount Lebanon range, just to the south of the famous Qadisha valley
A very high breeding density of Syrian Serins was reported here in 2001 and 2002(Ramadan-Jaradi & Ramadan-Jaradi 2002). At least 15 species of soaring bird are known to migrate over this site including large flocks of White Pelican Pelecanus onocrotalus. The Biome-restricted White-throated Robin Irania gutturalis,which is known to breed at only three other sites in Lebanon, has bred for several years on the boundaries of the reserve.
