Spain Birdwatching Tour
An 8-day Spain birding tour which explores Catalonia, the most cosmopolitan region in Spain. Catalonia has a strong economy based on industry, HighTech and tourism. Barcelona, it's the capital city, shows the best of the Catalan culture as it is open and cosmopolitan. The Catalan language, well alive in the whole territory despite the scarce recognition by Spanish authorities, is an example of how vibrant the country is.
During these 8 days, 7 nights long tour we will explore some of the best birding hot spots in the country, and we will do so in a gorgeous moment of the year! Yes, in late April and early May, the spring migration is on its peak and millions of birds cross the area in their trip between African and their European nesting grounds. And all of this when nesting season is at the very beginning! During the tour, we will enjoy several Nightingales, Golden Orioles and Calandra Larks singing.
The list of birds will arrive well above 200 and it will include top targets such as Bonelli's Eagle, Lammergeier, Ortolan Bunting, Pin-tailed & Black-bellied Sandgrouses, Dupont's Lark, Western Orphean Warbler, Audouin's Gull, Common Rock Thrush, Citril Finch, Iberian Green Woodpecker, Bearded Tit, Montagu's Harrier, Little Bustard, Tengmalm's Owl, Squacco Heron, Eurasian Eagle Owl, Black Woodpecker, Eurasian Scops Owl, Red-necked Nightjar, Lesser Short-toed Larks...
During the tour, we will enjoy exclusive accommodations offering wonderful evening meals with some local wine. The rhythm of the tour is not high as bird activity collapses at midday neither the afternoon, allowing excellent birding all day long!
