Situated on the border between Tuscany and Umbria, Lake Chiusi is the ideal habitat of numerous species of birds, such as the little egret, purple heron and glossy ibis. The area is also a stopover for migratory birds, such as the osprey or the black-winged stilt. Other nesting species are the great crested grebe, the Eurasian penduline tit and rare bearded reedling. Formed by two tributaries, the Tresa and Montelungo, it feeds the nearby Lake Montepulciano to the north as a tributary, which in turn feeds the Canale Maestro della Chiana.
