  1. Excellent birding guides
    scott from Vermont10 Jan 2018







    We had a great day of winter birding with Maria Harana. She was extremely knowledgeable about the history, ecology and birds of Donana. Her enthusiasm never waned. She was patient with the "non-birders" among us, made sure everyone saw every bird, and had great eyes and ears -- even while driving. We learned much and had a very pleasant day with Maria. Winter, of course, is not the greatest time for birding in Donana… but it was when we were visiting Spain, so we took a chance. It definitely paid off. Thanks to Maria, we got good looks at 66 species, including some wonderful rarities. Donana is tricky. Unlike national parks in America and other places we have been, people are not allowed in the inner portion of the region, which is technically the "National Park". Around the perimeter is a maze of roads through the agricultural lands. Having someone who knows where the birds are, and how to reach them is a great advantage at this location. And, Maria really made it special.
