Lammergeier
Lammergeiers (Gypaetos barbatus) are the pearl of the Pyrenees. There is no better place in the world to enjoy them. These massive high mountain vultures are true specialists as they feed only on bones and marrow. Up to 10 individuals can be seen in a single day's tour!
Wallcreeper
Often called the butterfly bird, this stunning species (Tichodroma muraria) lives on massive cliffs in the Pyrenees, where it looks for spiders and insects. They often fly around showing their wonderful white-spotted and red wings. The best time to enjoy them is in the winter when they can come surprisingly low.
Spanish Imperial Eagle
The Spanish Imperial Eagle (Aquila adalberti) is the only endemic raptor in Europe. Moreover, it is endemic to Spain and Portugal where it is to be found in a variety of habitats but especially in evergreen oak forests where the highest densities can be seen. The population has been increasing at a good rate after the crackdown on persecution of the birds in the 80s.
Dupont’s Lark
Dupont’s Lark (Chersophilus duponti) is probably the most enigmatical bird in Europe and one of the most difficult to get, hence their nickname of the 'ghost bird'! Their slim populations are mainly found in the Ebro Valley, where they are resident. You will hear many tales about how they never fly or never call, but these are all wrong.
Little Bustard
The image of a Little Bustard (Tetrax tetrax) standing in a wildflower-dotted wheat field in the early morning light, stretching up its black-and-white neck to sing on its lek, is one of the most iconic memories any birdwatcher could have of Spain. Populations of this bird are unfortunately decreasing, but the best densities are to be found in Catalonia.
Pin-tailed Sandgrouse
Sandgrouses (Pterocles alchata) are always special birds. Midway between a pigeon and a grouse they are extremely well adapted to survive in extremely arid conditions. Pin-tailed Sandgrouses are absolutely stunning birds and Barcelona Birding has a special relationship with these birds as it has been involved for years in monitoring their populations in Catalonia.
Audouin’s Gull
Audouin’s Gull (Larus audouinii) was extremely endangered for years but is now recovering. This beautiful gull combines a blood-like red bill with almost perfect gull proportions. It is an almost exclusively coastal bird, and the best place to enjoy them is the Ebro Delta, where 60% of the world's population nest. Along with them you can enjoy Flamingoes, Ibises, Pratincoles, Herons… The Delta is a heaven on Earth!
Citril Finch
Citril Finch (Serinus citrinella) is another European endemic and probably the most scarce small finch in Europe. It is a high mountain bird living in a very specific habitat, which is a tiny part of the huge Pyrenean range. Numbers are never extensive, which is why it has become such an iconic species, but there are several known good places to find them in the mountains.
Red-necked Nightjar
Red-necked Nightjars (Caprimulgus ruficollis) are endemic to Iberia and NW Africa. which means they are always a prime target bird to get! The best way to enjoy them is by having a nocturnal safari on the Lleida Steppes. Our special vehicle will let you have great views on the birds along with Scop's, Long-eared, Little and Eagle Owls.
Spanish Ibex
The Iberian ibex (Capra pyrenaica), also known as Spanish ibex, Spanish wild goat or Iberian wild goat, is a species of ibex that was historically made up of four subspecies. Of these, two are extinct but the other two can still be found on the Iberian Peninsula.

Barcelona Birding Point provides our customers with some of the best birding experiences possible while at the same time playing an active role in wildlife preservation. We are acutely aware that many areas of great importance from the point of view of wildlife preservation receive little or no official protection. Areas of cereal-growing steppes are a prime example, where there are often little local communities we work with to promote sustainable rural development. The aim is to minimise the impact on these sensitive areas while at the same time helping to raise awareness of the importance of native species and habitat conservation.

    Had a marvelous half day birding the Llobregat delta with Carles in April 2017 - just outside BCN, perfect for the birder vacationing with non-birding family as I was. Carles is a superb and highly efficient guide.

    Highly recommended! Carles Oliver is an expert birder, professional, personable, and exceptionally patient. He picked us up very early at our hotel in Barcelona and we explored the steppes and marshes starting with a Gryphon Vulture sunning himself in a field and culminating in sightings of Little Bustard, a life bird. A great day!

    We had a wonderful morning birding around Barcelona with Carles. He knew the sites perfectly and found us many new birds on our first trip to Spain. He even waited for us outside our hotel for a long time when we overslept having arrived late the night before! Highly recommended.

    My husband and I (both seniors and enthusiastic beginners at birdwatching) enjoyed several bird tours with Carles Oliver over several years. We started with a half day tour near Barcelona and, on subsequent visits to Barcelona we went on a one day and then on two three day tours (Pyrenees and Ebro Delta). Carles is a knowledgeable and accommodating guide who made sure we had a great time every time.

    One perfect day of birding with Carles Oliver. We visited four different places during the day, and saw and heard many species of warblers and several iberian woodpeckers to mention a few of the species. Carles knew where to find the birds and was a great guide. I really recommend Barcelona Birding Point to all birders.

    I had a marvelous one-day birding trip with Carles in the Pyrenees. He was an absolutely wonderful guide who had an encyclopedic knowledge about birds and an uncanny ability to spot them. He picked me up at my accommodation in Barcelona and drove us to several destinations throughout the Pyrenees. Some of the highlights included watching a Lammergeier soaring among several Griffon Vultures, and a juvenile Golden Eagle that flow low over the trees and then soared up and out of sight. We had great views of a Blue Rock-Thrush, Alpine Accentor, Rock Bunting, numerous Red Crossbills, and we were fortunate to see two White-winged Snowfinches that flew around us as we ate sandwiches at the top of a mountain pass. On our way down the mountain, we stopped in a small town and had wonderful views of a White-throated Dipper foraging in a stream that flowed through the town. Needless to say, it was a magical experience!

    Carles is an enchanter wizard, who's able to take you through unknown areas where he enables you to share whith him incredible emotions of pictures of wilderness and sensibility. My passion for shooting photographs of flying birds is strengthened every time I go with Carles. He's at the same time, highly competent, modest, very intuitive on the ground, always inquiring, helpful and kind.

    I attended already two tours guided by Carles Oliver - Big Catalonia/Spain loop and Morocco. Carles is one of the best birdwatchers that I met in my life, excellent observiation skills and encyclopedic knowledge of all birds in the region. Thanks to him my bird list was full of lifers after each of the trip. Moreover, Carles is very nice with people and keep smiling and in good mood the whole trip. Highly recommended!

    Between 2013 and 2018 we have made several birding trips with Carles from Barcelona Birding Point ranging from 1 day trips in Catalonia to 10 days birding in Morocco. Each trip has been a wonderful experience with excellent birding, fantastic landscapes, great food & accomodation and also excellent wildlife photography opportunities. Carles is an excellent guide, passionate about birding and conservation and he has a great approach to birdwatching, he is enthousiastic, energetic but never stressful and well organized. Highlights included: A wonderful 10 day trip in Central/Southern Morocco observing all the target birds, the trips to the Pyrenees including a visit a Vulture Feeding Station with fantastic close-up views of Bearded Vultures, European Black Vultures and Griffon Vultures. Birding the steppes with excellent close-up views of Dupont's Lark and a nocturnal birding trip observing 5 species of Owls and 2 Nightjar species! And our most recent mid-winter trip to Central Spain observing 8 Spanish Imperial Eagles, 50+ White-headed Ducks, Flocks of Great Bustards, 1000+ Cranes, Black-winged Kites and much more. We can highly recommend Barcelona Birding Point to all birders who want to experience a great birding experience!

    Fantastic experience! I've hired birding guides all over the world and Sergi and Carles are two of the most skilled, most enthusiastic, and most personable individuals I've had the pleasure to bird with. I spent one full day with Sergi and another full day with Carles. I found them both easy to talk to and easy to spend a day with. They grew up in Barcelona, so they not only know where the birds are, they know great little places to eat and interesting stories about the area. I'd do it again in a heartbeat.

    My wife and I did a tour with another couple (who had never met before) to explore the autumn raptor migration and more We stayed in the Pyrenees for 3 days birding and saw not only vast numbers of vultures, honey buzzards, eagles but had close encounters with Lamamergeiers, citril finches and black woodpeckers. Onto the plains and we had lifers in the crippler Dupont's Lark and many Dotterels before culminating in the magnificent Ebro Delta.(Higlight a murmuration of millions of Glossy Ibis going to roost) Good company, great birding, new friends and a few lifers. Strongly recommend!
