Discovering inland Spain
Pack some field glasses or binoculars and come and experience the world of birdwatching in an thrilling way. You don't need to be an expert in the field, you only need to be ready to enjoy a genuine spectacle of nature: thousands of birds flying overhead through the sky. Discover the most interesting places in inland Spain, and specialised guides will give you all the keys to ensure you don't miss a single detail. A word of warning: you've experienced it, you're sure to become a birdwatching enthusiast.
Did you know that over 300 species of birds fly over Extremadura throughout the year? And did you know that it is a refuge for some of Europe's most endangered species, such as the golden eagle and the black stork?
In Extremadura not only will you find a wide variety of birds, natural spaces (such as the Monfragüe Nature Reserve and the Cornalvo Nature Reserve ) and recommended routes for ornithology, but you can also attend various events on this theme: the Crane Festival in Extremadura, the Bird Festival in Cáceres, the International Ornithological Tourism Fair, and the International Nature Tourism Film Festival. Come and enjoy one of the most popular destinations with ornithologists and amateur birdwatchers from all over the world.
If you plan to go birdwatching on your own without the help of specialised guides, we recommend you stop by the nearest visitor centres for information about the place and the birds.
You must avoid disturbing the animals, and always keep to the signposted areas.
Depending on the habitat (Extremadura has Mediterranean forests, wooded pastures known as 'dehesa', scree beds, shrublands, grasslands, farmlands, reservoirs and rivers), you'll find various different species of birds.
