Spain is a country known for its rich culture and for having some of the best birding opportunities in Western Europe. On this tour, we’ll spend time in some of the most incredible birding spots in Spain. We’ll start in Andalucia in the south visiting well-known birding spots such as Tarifa and Doñana National Park. Some of our highlight species during this part of the tour could include Marbled Teal, Ferruginous and White-headed Ducks, Red-knobbed Coot, Northern Bald Ibis, a good variety of raptors including Short-toed and Booted Eagles, and Montagu’s Harrier, Iberian Chiffchaff, and much more. While in Andalucia, we will also search for the endangered Iberian Lynx!

We’ll then continue north to Extremadura, arguably the best birding province in Spain. Here we will visit the Santa Marta Steppes and Monfragüe National Park, both incredible birding locations. During this part of the trip, some of our avian highlights could include Spanish Eagle, Great and Little Bustards, Black-bellied and Pin-tailed Sandgrouse, European Bee-eater, European Roller, and Egyptian and Cinereous Vultures.

We will end the trip by birding in the Gredos Mountains which will provide a much different list of species than our other stops. While birding in this higher elevation, we will search for species such as Bluethroat, Citril Finch, Western Bonelli’s Warbler, and Ortolan Bunting.
